ISS MAPR Site Surface Met Imagery [EOL]

Summary

This data set contains surface meteorology imagery from the Integrated Sounding System (ISS) Multiple Antenna Profiler Radar (MAPR) sites during T-REX. MAPR is an advanced wind profiler radar developed to make rapid wind measurements of the boundary layer. The radar's antenna is divided into 4 vertically pointing sub-arrays for reception, and uses Spaced Antenna techniques to measure wind. As the atmosphere moves over the radar, the motion of the atmospheric echoes is tracked over the receivers to make a wind measurement. This data set contains real-time imagery files taken from the T-REX Field Catalog.
