CFI Climate Sentinels Gault MRR-2 Raw Data

This dataset contains raw data from a METEK vertically profiling K-band Micro Rain Radar (MRR-2) installed at the climate sentinel in the Gault Nature Reserve (GAUL), about 30 km east of Montréal, Québec.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 provides vertical profiles of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, and spectrum width. The site is located at the southern flank of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, a mountain with an elevation of about 400 m (above mean sea-level). Several other sites also collected MRR data during WINTRE-MIX.
