Snow Drift Station - Micro Rain Radar

The instrument (MRR, Metek) was mounted at Gotschnagrat (LON: 46.859 LAT: 9.849) at a height of 1 m above snow surface (at the beginning of the campaign) with an orientation of 22° with respect to North and a horizontal viewing direction. The sampling time was either 5 s or 10 s, depending on the settings at the specific period. The MRR produces standard outputs like radar reflectivity, doppler velocity, etc., and additional information can be found here.
