ISS Operations at SWEX

NCAR/EOL planned to operate ISS (Integrated Sounding Systems) at three sites for the SWEX field campaign to observe Sundowner winds in the Santa Barbara area March - May 2020.   However because of the on-going COVID-19 situation, only two sites are running with limited instrumentation for testing purposes. 

Quick look plots are available here:

Please note that this data is preliminary only and requires correction (particularly for wind direction). The instrumentation being tested includes:
