This dataset contains S-band (central frequency of 3.298 GHz) radar measurements from the TU Delft transportable atmospheric radar TARA. It includes profiles of the equivalent reflectivity factor. Further, the horizontal wind (speed and direction) and the vertical Doppler velocity profiles are supplied. TARA is placed at the remote sensing site at Cabauw. It is a very sensitive profiling radar providing time-height indicators.
