NAME Regional Radar Network 2-D Near-Surface Reflectivity and Rain Rate 5-KM Composite


This dataset includes two-dimensional gridded five kilometer regional composites of near-surface radar reflectivity factor and rain rate from the NAME radar network. The NAME radar network consisted of three radars location near the mouth of the Gulf of California and the western slope of the Sierra Madre Occidental. This dataset was updated by the source on June 25, 2007.
