The NAMMA TOGA Radar Data dataset consists of a collection of products derived from the NASA TOGA radar observations that were collected in the Republic of Cape Verde during the NAMMA campaign. The NASA TOGA radar is a C-band scanning radar with a beam width of 1.65 degrees. The radar was deployed on the southern tip of Sao Tiago (14.92N, 23.48W), the southern-most island in the Cape Verde islands. The radar operated nearly continuously from 15 August through 16 September, 2006, collecting measurements of horizontal radar reflectivity (ZH), radial velocity (VR) and spectral width (SW). 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.
