The Institute of Meterological and Climate Research Dornier 128 aircraft data were collected at Chilbolton, Hampshire by instruments on the aircraft, between the 22nd of June 2005 and the 14th of July 2005. The dataset includes measurements of wind direction and wind speed, air density, and air temperature.

Measurements taken by the Dornier 128 aircraft and stored in this dataset are:

static pressure, uncorrected (hPa)
barometric altitude (m)
radarheight above ground (m)
latitude (deg)
longitude (deg)
true air speed (m/s)
velocity over ground (m/s)
vertical velocity (m/s)
radiation pyranometer top (W/m2)
radiation pyranomter bottom (W/m2)
radiation pyrgeometer top (W/m2)
radiation pyrgeometer bottom (W/m2)
air density (kg/m3)
fast air temperature (deg Celsius)
potential temperature (deg Celsius)
filtered mixing ratio (g/kg)
mixing ratio Lyman-Alpha (g/kg)
wind component west-east (m/s)
wind component south-north (m/s)
vertical wind component (m/s)
wind direction (deg)
wind speed (m/s)
