RADAR WIND PROFILERS
Radar wind profilers are continuously providing wind profile observations, independent of weather conditions. The wind profiler network is complemented by wind measurements from precipitation radars during rain and snowfall.
E-PROFILE operates a centralised data hub near real-time data collection and processing. The measured data are distributed as NetCDF via FTP and as BUFR over the GTS for assimilation by the leading numerical weather prediction centres.
