The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK) Lidar Data are images displaying the polar wind velocity and the polar aerosol concentration. For elevation scans there are figures at azimuth 0, 60 and 120 degrees, for the azimuth scan there are figures at elevations 7, 12 and 17 degrees available. Angles are indicated in the line above the colourscale. Vertical scans have been made at elevation 90 degree. The upper figures are showing polar (radial) velocity, the lower ones aerosol backscatter at the three different angles which are indecated in each figure above the colour scale. The diagrams are showing unaveraged data. They vizualize a snapshot of approx. 10 minutes measurements starting at the time stated in the filename. Data were recorded from the 19th of June 2005 to the 29th of August 2005.
The dataset contains images of the UFAM (Universites' Facility for Atmospheric Measurements) 1290MHz wind-profiler site at Linkenholt, Hampshire from the 11th June 2005 to the 31st of August 2005. NOTE: From 11/06/2005 to 16/06/2005 the timestamp in the picture is GMT from 18/07/2005 to 31/08/2005 the timestamp is BST. The camera was facing South in a trailer next to the UFAM 1290MHz wind profiler. The camera was a Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 webcam. Its data availability was patchy at first, but it provided continuous imagery during July and August at 30 s sampling.
The University of Salford photograph data are digital photographs taken approximately every 30 minutes at the Faccombe wind turbine site, Hampshire. The dataset contains photographs taken on four days between the 11th of August 2005 and 25th of August 2005. The latitude and longitude of the field site is N 51°19.51’ and W 1°26.46’ respectively. Photographs were taken approximately every 30 minutes and the pictures are orientated to a bearing of 310°.
