GCIP/NESOB-97 Radar: ABRFC WSR-88D Stage III Hourly Precipitation

Summary

This dataset contains data from the NOAA Arkansas-Red Basin River Forecast Center. The ABRFC routinely ingests WSR-88D precipitation derived products (Level III) from each of the radar sites with coverage in the Arkansas-Red River Basin (15 radars). In addition the ABRFC ingests real-time precipitation data from a total of approximately 500 gages. The ABRFC 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 Arkansas-Red River Basin.
