Description

Data in this collection is from micro-pulse lidar (MPL) and near field of view (NFOV) radiometer from 20 Dec 2014 to 1 March 2015. The instruments are co-located and zenith-aligned. Measurements were recorded at the CAROb site (http://carob.rsmas.miami.edu/) located in the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. The data in this collection is categorized as MPL and zenith radiometer data.
