GPM Ground Validation CAX1 Radar CFradial format OLYMPEX V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation CAX1 Radar CFradial format OLYMPEX dataset consists of radar parameters, such as Radar reflectivity, Doppler velocity, Doppler width, Differential reflectivity, and Signal quality index, provided on a 0.4 to 1.0 km spatial resolution within the OLYMPEX field campaign study region in the state of Washington. These data were obtained for the GPM Ground Validation OLYMPEX field campaign by the dual polarization X-band “CAX1” portable scanning radar. The CAX1 radar was located at the southern tip of Vancouver Island on the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Esquimalt Albert Head (AHD) military training area. The CAX1 radar was operated by Environment and Climate Change Canada to support the OLYMPEX field campaign. These data are available in Cfradial netCDF-4 format from November 14, 2015 through April 1, 2016.
