TitleMobile mesonet locations in VORTEX2
AbstractThis dataset contains images showing the approximate storm-relative mobile mesonet vehicle locations during the Second Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment (VORTEX2). Each image corresponds to a WSR-88D reflectivity scan, with vehicle tracks over a 10-min period centered on the time that the radar image was obtained. The vehicle tracks are approximate because a long-term average for the storm motion was used. The tracks ought to be accurate enough for one to characterize the quality of sampling within the storms. Mobile mesonet data from VORTEX2 are archived on the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and are available at
