Mobile Alabama X-Band (MAX) Radar data
This data set contains data from the University of Alabama Huntsville Mobile Alabama X-band Radar (MAX). It was collected during intense observation periods (IOPs) between 1 March and 1 May 2016 for the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes EXperiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE) 2016 Field Campaign. Preliminary field corrections were made, however the data is considered raw and has not undergone quality control. The data is provided in both raw file format and converted to the Universal Format (Common Doppler Radar Exchange Format). For more information about the instrument, data format, and quality control procedure, see the included documentation pdf.
Files have been compressed by date of IOP.
