Data sets

CU DataHawk Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Data. Version 1.0 D. Lawrence and A. Doddi

DataHawk2 Uncrewed Aircraft System data from the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) campaign, B1 level G. Jozef, G. de Boer, J. Cassano, R. Calmer, J. Hamilton, D. Lawrence, S. Borenstein, A. Doddi, J. Schmale, A. Preußer, and B. Argrow

Short summary
The DataHawk2 is a small, low-cost, rugged, uncrewed aircraft system (UAS) used to observe the thermodynamic and turbulence structures of the lower atmosphere, supporting an advanced understanding of the physical processes that regulate weather and climate. This paper discusses the development, performance, and sensing capabilities of the DataHawk2 using data collected during several recent field deployments.
