Current types include migrating landbirds, Brazilian free-tailed bats ( Tadarida brasiliensis), black-necked grebes (aka eared grebe, Podiceps nigricollis), purple martins ( Progne subis), and mayflies ( Hexagenia sp.) and support current research on landbird movement along the Gulf of Mexico coast, the impacts of alternative energy on aerofauna, and development of radar biological data mining algorithms. This dataset currently includes six radar metrics (radar reflectivity, radial velocity, spectrum [...]
