NOAA PSL Microwave Radiometer Brightness Temperature and Surface Meteorology Data

Microwave brightness temperature and surface meteorology data from the NOAA/PSL Microwave Radiometers (MWRs) that were deployed at Columbia, LA and Courtland, AL for Propagation, Evolution and Rotation in Linear Storms (PERiLS). Temperature and humidity profiles as well as liquid water path can be retrieved from the MWR brightness temperatures and these will be available in a separate dataset.
