NOAA NSSL MRMS 3-D Beamwidth Dataset
A three dimensional collection of beam width for each point in the ICICLE (In-Cloud ICing and Large-drop Experiment) domain in tarred and gzipped NetCDF format are contained in this dataset. The file naming format is "ICICLE_BEAMWIDTH_yy-xx_20190205-20190307_netCDF.tar.gz" where yy-xx is the yy.xx beamwidth. This experimental product is the first iteration and may contain some artifacts/oddities. The domain covers only the area of the ICICLE field campaign. No MRMS data are available prior to 5 February due to the federal government shutdown in early 2019.
Any public presentations/publications using this data must include NSSL as co-author.
NOTE: This is a large dataset. Order limitations are 32GB per order, so please check file sizes when ordering.
IMPORTANT: For each order, unzip and untar the files in a separate directory with sufficient size (1-2TB) to ensure that files are not overwritten. Some of these files may untar/unzip to hundreds of Gigabytes.
