NCAR PPI-MMM Radar Data Analysis Software Package
Entry ID: UCAR_MMM_PPIMMM
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: PPI-MMM is a program to analyze radar measurements taken at spherical
coordinates (range, azimuth, and elevation). It accepts radar data in any of
the following formats: field formats (FF) from the NCAR/ATD radar processors
(RP-3 through 7), universal format (UF), the DORADE (airborne and ground-based
radars, including ATD/SOLO sweep files), and the National Climate Data Center
(NCDC) NEXRAD Level II format. Data are processed by sweeps from PPI
(surveillance or azimuth sector at a constant elevation angle) or RHI (changing
elevation angle at a constant azimuth angle) scans. Several options are
available for manipulating the data algebraically and displaying it.
