Cf/Radial RADAR/LIDAR Data Format


Overview

Cf/Radial is the most recent format to be developed at NCAR/UCAR for handling radial data from modern radar and lidar platforms.

Cf/Radial is a collaborative effort between EOL, RAL and UNIDATA.

Cf/Radial is a CF-compliant netCDF format. Because of its CF-compliance, CfRadial will allow researchers familiar with CF to read the data into a wide variety of analysis tools, models etc.

The Proposed Cf/Radial Convention is published in PDF.
