Circle images linked here are for one of the circle patterns from each flight. The images depict radar reflectivity from the nadir beam of the W-band instrument on the C-130. Posted February 7, 2003.
rf05 - Flow field in the radar scan plane. Images found under this link show the results of the dual-Doppler analyses for the 10:30 to 10:58 circle. There are 15 pages of it. The flight altitude was 998 m. The grid spacing for these analyses is 25 m in the vertical and 22 m in the horizontal, though only every third point in the horizontal is shown in the figures. The images have roughly 2:1 horizontal to vertical aspect ratios. The horizontal winds represent the local deviation of the wind from the large-scale average in the vertical plane extendig down from the flight path. The narrower strips contain images of the reflectivity field and of the vertical velocity at 1:1 aspect ratio. The abscissa for these plots is the azimuth angle of the quasi-circular flight track, but time is also given. These analyses were done and the images were produced by David Leon.
