GPM GROUND VALIDATION MCGILL W-BAND RADAR GCPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation McGill W-Band Radar GCPEx dataset was collected from February 1, 2012 to February 29, 2012 at the CARE site in Ontario, Canada as a part of the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx). This datset was collected to aid in the achievement of the over arching goal of GCPEx which is to characterize the ability of multi-frequency active and passive microwave sensors to detect and estimate falling snow. The W-Band radar is a single antenna, 94-GHz pulsed Doppler, vertical pointing radar system. Data products from the W-Band radar include radar reflectivity, Doppler moments, and Doppler spectra of variable lengths. The W-Band radar is primarily used to research various cloud properties. The GPM Ground Validation McGill W-Band Radar GCPEx dataset is available in netCDF format.
