NOAA P-3 Tail X-band Doppler Radar

This dataset contains radar data from the NOAA P-3 aircraft's tail-mounted X-band Doppler radar taken for the Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) project. The data provide detailed 3D information of convective cloud reflectivity and Doppler velocity with focus on storm structure variability and (up- and down-) scale interactions of mesoscale convective systems during distinct MJO phases. The data are available by time period (there are often two files for a given day) as g-zipped Dorade files.
