Abstract. In July 2018, the International Society for Atmospheric Research using Remotely-piloted Aircraft (ISARRA) hosted a flight week to showcase the role remotely-piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) can have in filling the atmospheric data gap.This campaign was dubbed Lower Atmospheric Process Studies at Elevation – A Remotely-piloted Aircraft Team Experiment(LAPSE-RATE). In support of this campaign, ground-based remote and in-situ systems were also deployed for the campaign.The University of Oklahoma deployed the Collaborative Lower Atmospheric Mobile Profiling System (CLAMPS), the University of Colorado deployed two Doppler wind lidars, and the National Severe Storms Lab deployed a Mobile Mesonet with the ability to launch radiosondes. This paper focuses on the data products from these instruments that result in pro-files of the atmospheric state. The data are publicly available in the Zenodo LAPSE-RATE community portal (https://zenodo.org/communities/lapse-rate/). The profile data discussed are available at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3780623 (Bell and Klein, 2020), https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3780593 (Bell et al., 2020b), https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3727224 (Bell et al., 2020a), https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3738175 (Waugh, 2020b), https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3720444 (Waugh, 2020a),and https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3698228 (Lundquist et al., 2020).

Short summary
In July 2018, numerous weather sensing remotely-piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) were flown in a flight week called Lower Atmospheric Process Studies at Elevation – A Remotely-piloted Aircraft Team Experiment (LAPSE-RATE). As part of LAPSE-RATE, ground-based remote and in-situ systems were also deployed to supplement and enhance the observations from the RPAS. These instruments include multiple Doppler lidars, thermodynamic profilers, and radiosondes. This paper describes data from these systems.
