It's back!!! We are operating the Vaisala LAP-3000 Boundary Layer Profiler at Reese Center (12 miles west of Lubbock, TX) in real-time (LBKTX). We are currently running twenty-minute scans for wind and temperature (RASS-virtual temperature) at 60-meter bin spacing for wind speed and direction below 2 km above ground level.... and 200-meter bin spacing from 600-meters to 6 km AGL (temperature data from 160-meters to 1.6 km AGL). The initial bin starts at 150-meters above ground level (AGL). Real-time data is now available on the FSL MADIS web site.
