CFI Climate Sentinels Arboretum MRR-2 Processed Data

This dataset contains post-processed data from a METEK vertically profiling K-band Micro Rain Radar (MRR-2) installed at the climate sentinel in the Arboretum forest reserve (ARBO), about 30 km west of Montréal downtown, Québec, Canada. The data were collected as part of the Winter Precipitation Type Research Multi-scale Experiment (WINTRE-MIX) field project held in February and March of 2022.The instrument used to collect this data provides vertical profiles of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, and spectrum width. The site is located near the confluence of the Ottawa River and the St. Lawrence River. Several other sites also collected MRR data during WINTRE-MIX.
