Wind Profiler Radar (WPR)
Observation Data


(Version 02.0212)


Please note: If you acquire Manado-WPR data, we ask that you acknowledge us in your use of the data. This may be done by including text such as Manado-WPR data were obtained by the JEPP-HARIMAU and SATREPS-MCCOE projects promoted by JAMSTEC and BPPT under collaboration with RISH of Kyoto University and BMKG. We would also appreciate receiving a copy of the relevant publications. Thank you!
