Tropical Wind Profiler Database
Researchers at PSL have been operating Wind Profiling Radars, or Wind Profilers, at several sites worldwide for many years. From this web site, interested researchers can download post-processed, quality-controlled wind and temperature profiles.
The database of profiler measurements contained herein consists of observations from the Trans-Pacific Profiler Network, the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere - Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment, TOGA-COARE, and other profiler sites.
Included on this page are:
- A description of how the data was obtained, processed, and formatted in the database
- An inventory of available data sets.
- The Data Download page.
- A list of contacts and references, including the Tropical Profiler Research Publications database (updated quarterly; both Aeronomy Lab and external authors).
