Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) is a vertically pointing Doppler radar which provides measurements of vertical velocity, drop size distribution, rainfall rate, attenuation, liquid water content, and reflectivity factor obtained during the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E), which took place in Oklahoma during Spring 2011. The MRR is a frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) vertically pointing Doppler radar, which operates at 24.24GHz, and it is the second generation of the instrument manufactured by METEK (URL:
