GATE Ship Radar, June to September 1974

| DOI: 10.5065/4NM2-5Q48

This data set contains the polar digital tilt sequence data (normally one sequence each 15 minutes consisting of a base tilt scan followed by scans taken at successively higher tilt angles) collected with the 2 NOAA C-band radars for the 3 phases of GATE. Each scan contains equivalent reflectivity factors for 2-degree by 2km data bins out to a maximum range of 260 km. The intensity resolution is 1 dBZ. The raw digital values for the polar data bins were obtained in real time by using a Digital Video Integrator and Processor (DVIP).

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
