Published: 13 May 2024| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/nt7wsscrs5.1


The experiments were performed by operating CUSAT ST Radar on July 21 and 22, 2022. The Radar has been operated in four modes: viz. mode-1, mode-2, mode-3, and mode-4. Here mode-1 is the 5-beam configuration operation that is used to derive the wind components from the radar, and mode-2 is the continuous vertical observation. Mode-3 is the multibeam mode operated to study the orthogonal characteristics in the east-west and north-south directions with 61 beams up to 30° angle in steps of 2°. Mode-4 is the volume scan mode using 31 beams in a scan cycle time of about 18 minutes. All the data are in netCDF format. All modes of experimental data is kept in this data repository.
