PECAN: Radar mosaic Quantitative Precipitation Estimates QPE


QPE mosaic radar data collected during the extended PECAN (Plains Elevated Convection at Night) period of 12 May to 22 July 2015. The mosaic included QPE data calculated with 0.01° x 0.01° (~1 km x 1 km) spatial and 1-hourly temporal resolution from a composite of 21 WSR-88D radars from the Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) system. The data is in NetCDF format.
