Abstract. In July 2018, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) were deployed to measure the properties of lower atmosphere within the San Luis Valley, an elevated valley in Colorado, USA as part of the Lower Atmospheric Profiling Studies at Elevation – a Remotely-piloted Aircraft Team Experiment (LAPSE-RATE). Measurement objectives included detailing boundary-layer transition, canyon cold-air drainage, and convection initiation within the valley. Details of the contribution to LAPSE-RATE made by University of Kentucky are provided here, which include measurements by seven different fixed-wing and rotorcraft UAS totaling over 178 flights with validated data. The data from these coordinated UAS flights consist of thermodynamic and kinematic variables (air temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction) and include vertical profiles up to 900 m above the ground level and horizontal transects up to 1500 m in length. These measurements have been quality controlled and are openly available in the Zenodo LAPSE-RATE community data repository (https://zenodo.org/communities/lapse-rate/), with the University of Kentucky data available at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3701845 (Bailey et al., 2020).

Short summary
This article describes the systems, processes and procedures used by researchers from the University of Kentucky (UK) for the Lower Atmospheric Profiling Studies at Elevation – a Remotely-piloted Aircraft Team Experiment (LAPSE-RATE) in the San Luis Valley in Colorado, USA. Using unmanned aerial systems (UAS) as the primary data-gathering tool, UK supported multi-point, multi-system measurements of drainage flow, boundary layer transition, convection initiation and aerosol concentration.
