NAMMA NASA POLARIMETRIC DOPPLER WEATHER RADAR (NPOL) V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The NAMMA NASA Polarimetric Doppler Weather Radar (NPOL) dataset used the NPOL, developed by a research team from Wallops Flight Facility, is a fully transportable and self-contained S-band research radar that collected and operated nearly continuously during NAMMA. Data was collected 19 August through 30 September 2006, at Kawsara, Senegal. Its continuous operation provides a full volume scan every fifteen minutes. Scans may be either 270 Km long range scans or 150 Km range for most high resolution data scans. Products available include real time PPI scans of reflectivities and velocities, and near real time displays of other radar products, including RHI's, CAPPI's, and Polarimetric products. Browse imagery is available for PPI reflectivities. These data files were generated during support of the NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) campaign, a field research investigation sponsored by the Science Mission Directorate of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). This mission was based in the Cape Verde Islands, 350 miles off the coast of Senegal in west Africa. Commencing in August 2006, NASA scientists employed surface observation networks and aircraft to characterize the evolution and structure of African Easterly Waves (AEWs) and Mesoscale Convective Systems over continental western Africa, and their associated impacts on regional water and energy budgets.
