The GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) LPVEx dataset was collected during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) field campaign. The LPVEx field campaign took place around the Gulf of Finland in September and October of 2010. The goal of the campaign was to provide additional high altitude, light rainfall measurements for the improvement of GPM satellite precipitation algorithms. The MRR is a Biral/Metek 24 GHz (K-band) vertically oriented Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FM-CW) radar that measures signal backscatter from which Doppler spectra, radar reflectivity, Doppler velocity, drop size distribution, rain rate, liquid water content, and path integrated attenuation are derived. The dataset contains measured and derived data from MRR instruments placed at four remote sites (Jarvenpaa, Emasalo, Harmaja, and the research vessel Aranda). Data files are available in ASCII data format.
