GCIP/EAOP-99 Radar: LMRFC WSR-88D Stage III Hourly Precipitation Imagery (GIF)

Summary

This data set contains data from the NOAA Lower Mississippi River Forecast Center (LMRFC). The LMRFC routinely ingests WSR-88D precipitation derived products (Level III) from each of the radar sites with coverage in the Lower Mississippi River Basin. In addition the LMRFC ingests real-time precipitation data from several hundred gages. The LMRFC produces a number of derived or "Stage" products using the radar and precipitation gage data. A Stage II product is produced by merging radar precipitation estimates (Stage I) with ground truth data provided by the gages. The Stage II estimates are then composited into a Stage III precipitation 4 x 4 km resolution area averaged mosaic for the Lower Mississippi River Basin.
