Micro Rain Radar

The Micro Rain Radar (MRR) is a vertically pointing radar, manufactured by Metek. MRR is extremely suitable for measurements in harsh and unmanned environments and it records Doppler velocity spectra every 10 s at 32 range gates. A MRR was installed at Mario Zucchelli Station in November 2015 and it records profiles between 100 to 3100 m above the surface. The raw K-band power spectra, collected by the MRR, is processed applying the method proposed by Maahn and Kollias (2012) to correct for noise and aliasing effects, making them suitable for snow observation.
