This GCPEx NASA MRR Version-1 dataset was active to 13 May 2015, and has now been retired.
The new version is now available at http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/GCPEX/MRR/DATA204.
The GPM Ground Validation NASA Micro Rain Radar (MRR) is a vertically pointing Doppler radar which provides measurements of vertical velocity, drop size distribution, rainfall rate, attenuation, liquid water content, and reflectivity factor obtained during the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx), which took place in Canada during Winter 2011-2012. The MRR is a frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) vertically pointing Doppler radar, which operates at 24.24GHz, and it is the second generation of the instrument manufactured by METEK (http://www.metek.de/product-details/mrr-2.html). NASA MRR data was collected from late October 2011 through March 2013.
