GPM GROUND VALIDATION DUAL-FREQUENCY DUAL-POLARIZED DOPPLER RADAR (D3R) GCPEX V1
Entry ID: gpmd3rgcpex_1


Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation Dual-frequency Dual-polarized Doppler Radar (D3R) GCPEx and IFloodS data sets contain radar reflectivity and doppler velocity measurements. The D3R was developed by a government-industry-academic consortium with funding from NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Project. It operates at the ku (13.91 GHz ± 25 MHz) and ku (35.56 GHz ± 25 MHz) frequencies covering a fixed range from 450 m to 39.75 km. The GPM Ground Validation Dual-frequency Dual-polarized Doppler Radar (D3R) GCPEx dataset is available in netCDF format. Browse images are also available in .png format.
