GPM Ground Validation High Altitude Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP) OLYMPEX V1a
Entry ID: gpmhiwrapolyx_1a


Summary
Abstract: The High Altitude Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP) instrument is a Doppler radar designed to measure tropospheric winds through deriving Doppler profiles from cloud and precipitation volume backscatter. (Li et al. 2016). The winds are generated by combining conical scan mode measurements at two different frequency bands (Ka- and Ku-band) and two different incidence angles (30 and 40 ...
