This data set contains the observations from the Compact Raman Lidar (CRL) that was deployed on the NOAA P-3 aircraft for VORTEX-SE 2018. The CRL provided water vapor, temperature, and aerosol profiles along the NOAA P-3 aircraft flight track. The P-3 flew at locations around the Southeast United States during VORTEX-SE 2018 observing periods. This data set includes the CRL data for each flight and quicklook imagery for each flight.


Steps to reproduce

The dataset is in form of NetCDF files. It contains information on WVMR, time, longitude, latitude, and height in the file. This dataset also includes IDL code to read and plot the data.
