The NASA S-Band Dual Polarimetric (NPOL) Doppler Radar IMPACTS dataset consists of rain rate, reflectivity, Doppler velocity, and other radar measurements obtained from the NPOL radar during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. The goal of IMPACTS was to provide observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation, organization, and evolution, examine how the microphysical characteristics and likely growth mechanisms of snow particles vary across snowbands, and improve snowfall remote sensing interpretation and modeling to significantly advance prediction capabilities. The IMPACTS NPOL data are available from January 10, 2020 thru February 25, 2020. Zipped data files are in netCDF-3/CF format and contain corrected radar reflectivity, differential reflectivity, specific differential phase, differential phase, co-polar correlation, and Doppler velocity images.
