Nontornadic supercell thunderstorms observed by the Doppler-On-Wheels radars analyzed in the Markowski et al. (2011) study
The dataset consists of the three-dimensional wind fields within three nontornadic supercell thunderstorms that were retrieved from dual-Doppler radar observations obtained by a pair of Doppler on Wheels (DOW) radars. The storms were observed near Brownfield, TX, on 3 May 2001, near Sprague, NE, on 12 June 2004, and near Las Animas, CO, on 17 June 2004. All three storms displayed strong low-level rotation (e.g., the vertical vorticity maxima exceed 0.05 s–1 in the lowest 1000 m AGL in each storm). The software used to analyze the radar data also is included.
