Three weeks passed since the first instruments where switched on around 26 November. Even though the actual hardware implementation did not take much more than 3 days, all members of the DACAPO-PESO team are working hard on getting the processing chain for the data up and running.
It was decided to implement a two-stage data processing. First processing is done on a server on-site in Punta Arenas. One 120-TB machine collects all data from the individual instruments of LACROS and frequent quicklooks are created. During night time, when network traffic at UMAG is low, most data is being transferred to the central remote sensing server of TROPOS in Leipzig. Only the raw spectra of 35-GHz radar is excluded from this data transfer.
Everybody is invited to have a look at the quicklooks of the DACAPO-PESO observations. Below is a list of links to most of the measurement quicklooks.
