Perdigão-2017: multi-lidar flow mapping over the complex terrain site

This dataset has been recorded by eight long-range WindScanners that were deployed during the Perdigão 2017 campaign. For the campaign which took place in central Portugal near the village of Perdigão eight scanners were located on two mountain ridges that run in parallel for about 2 km. The scanners carried out three synchronized scanning scenarios: transect scans at three positions perpendicular to the ridge with two scanners at two transects and one transect with four scanners; a scan following transects 80m above the ridges; and virtual mast scans at four locations.

This is an original dataset. It represents Level 2.3 data product in the FAIR lidar data schematics, that is geo-located radial velocities stored in NetCDF files with dimensions of time, range and line-of-sight number.
