Since December 2012 AWIPEV operates a commercial Wind Lidar (WindCube 200, Leosphere) on the roof of the AWIPEV observatory in Ny-Ålesund, which runs unattended and continuously. It uses the Doppler effect of an eye safe laser at 1.5 μm wavelength to measure the 3-dimensional vertically resolved wind with typically 10min temporal resolution. The resolution in altitude is 50m. Its range depends on weather conditions and can reach up to 5km. In this collection the wind lidar dataset from 2012 to 2020 from AWIPEV are presented, each dataset comprises one year of data, with data recorded for every day individually, saved in netcdf format and provided for download.
