Micro Rain Radar Raw Data


This dataset includes vertical profiles from two Micro Rain Radars (MRRs) belonging to the University of Utah and two MRRs belonging to SUNY Albany that were deployed for the (Ontario Winter Lake-effect Systems (OWLeS) project in a transect beginning on the shore of Lake Ontario and extending to the upper reaches of the Tug Hill Plateau. The sites were Sandy Island Beach State Park (43.630N, 76.196W, 83 m MSL), Sandy Creek Central School (43.647N, 76.076W, 162 m MSL), a private residence (43.626N, 75.880W, 385 m MSL) north of the village of Redfield (hereafter North Redfield), and a private residence (43.733N, 75.717W, 543m MSL) near Sears Pond on the upper plateau (hereafter Upper Plateau). An Inter-Comparison was performed from 25-28 January 2014. This dataset contains the raw data.
