NOAA P3 Tail Doppler Radar Data: DYNAMO Legacy Collection


This data set contains the data from the X-Band tail-mounted Doppler radar that was on-board the NOAA P-3 aircraft N43RF for the flights during DYNAMO. The aircraft was based out of Diego Garcia and the flights were focused on storm structure variability and scale interactions of mesoscale convective systems during distinct phases of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO). The data are in NetCDF format.
