Abstract: The NASA Polarimetric Radar (NPOL), developed by a research team from Wallops Flight Facility, is a fully transportable and self-contained S-band research radar that collected and operated nearly continuously during NAMMA. Data was collected 19 August through 30 September 2006, at Kawsara, Senegal. Its continuous operation provides a full volume scan every fifteen minutes. Scans may be either 270 Km long range scans or 150 Km range for most high resolution data scans. Products available include real time PPI scans of reflectivities and velocities, and near real time displays of other radar products, including RHI's, CAPPI's, and Polarimetric products. Browse imagery is available for PPI reflectivities.
