Ryan et al. (2024): data for OTI MPL drone paper

dataset
posted on 2024-03-04, 06:53 authored by ROBERT RYANROBERT RYAN

This data repository contains raw data and code for the calculation of planetary boundary layer height (PBLH).

The data was collected at One Tree Island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef as part of the Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program's Cooling and Shading fieldwork in March and April 2023. Data files include vertical potential temperature profiles collected by quadcopter drones. Additional data files are raw backscatter collected by a mini-Micropulse Lidar (MPL).

PBLH calculated from these two distinct datasets was the subject of Ryan et al. (2024).

Code for the data analysis in the comparison is in the Jupyter ipython notebook 'MPL_Drone_Comparison.ipynb'. Additional comments on the comparison and methodology are contained in the Jupyter notebook. All drone and MPL data files are readable with the Jupyter notebook provided the user has installed the packages listed at the top of the file.

Initial upload 4 March 2024 at the time of submission of the manuscript to Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.
