Brazil Sao Borja X-Band Dual Polarization Radar Data

Summary

This data set contains the data from the X-Band dual polarization radar that was located in Sao Borja, Brazil during the RELAMPAGO (Remote sensing of Electrification, Lightning, And Meso-scale/micro-scale Processes with Adaptive Ground Observations) field season. The radar was operated by INPE (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais). Included are 10 minute volume scans, RHI (Range Height Indicator) scans pointing to convective storms when possible, as well as PPI (Plan Position Indicator) scans that were made in between the RHI scans on convective days.
