GPM GROUND VALIDATION NASA MICRO RAIN RADAR (MRR) MC3E V1
Entry ID: gpmmrrnamc3e_1


Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation NASA Micro Rain Radar (MRR) MC3E dataset was collected by a Micro Rain Radar (MRR), which is a vertically pointing Doppler radar which provides measurements of vertical velocity, drop size distribution, rainfall rate, attenuation, liquid water content, and reflectivity factor obtained during the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E), which took place in Oklahoma during the Spring of 2011. The MRR is a frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) vertically pointing Doppler radar, which operates at 24.24GHz, and is the second generation of the instrument manufactured by METEK (URL: http://metek.de/product/mrr-2/).
