Wind - lidar data from ZephIR 300M (unit ZP738) during Cabauw campaign 2018-2020 (10 minutes averaged values)

Daily files of wind profiles (10 minute average values) between 11 and 300m altitude, measured by the ZephIR 300M wind lidar (ZP firmware), obtained during a measurement campaign by KNMI at the Cabauw site from February 2018 to June 2020. Related datasets are windlidar_cabauw_zephir300M_zp738_1s (with the raw data instead of the 10-minute averaged output), and windlidar_cabauw_zephir300M_zx973_10min and windlidar_cabauw_zephir300M_zx973_1s, which are wind lidar dataset that were taken with a newer firmware (ZX), for the last three months of the campaign (Feb. 2020-June 2020).
