WINTRE-MIX: McGill VertiX Vertically Pointing Radar Data
The McGill Radar Observatory operates 2 vertically pointing X-band radars (VertiX) at 2 sites on the island of Montreal. The vertically pointing X-band radars can detect all precipitation targets and some ice clouds. They can also measure the Doppler velocity of precipitation targets. They allow the production of very detailed radar images of weather as it passes overhead. The radar located at the McGill Radar site (JSM) on the west of the Island is dual-polarized while the one on Burnside Hall (BH) downtown is single polarized. The dual-polarization permits additional information on the variability of shapes of the precipitation targets that the single polarization radar cannot.
