Description du jeu de données
RésuméThe main objective is to provide accurate maps of precipitation above the Donga catchment for hydrological applications. X-port, high resolution 3D scans, with polarimetric parameters, within the precipitation systems will also provide a useful insight on the physical processes governing the precipitation.
Strategie d'observationVolumetric scans of polarimetric data (typical : 10 to 15 PPIs, down in RHI mode, and a revisit time of 5mn). Also fixed vertical sounding (I,Qs series). Polarimetric algorythms and joint radar/gage of precipitation estimate. Comprisons with the 'gage cluster target' situated near Djougou and disdrometer data.

Information sur l'utilisation des données
Conditions d'utilisation des donnéesPermission is granted to use these data in research and publications when accompanied by the following statement: "The AMMA-CATCH regional observing system was set up thanks to an incentive funding of the French Ministry of Research that allowed pooling together various pre-existing small scale observing setups. The continuity and long term perenity of the measurements are made possible by an undisrupted IRD funding since 1990 and by a continuous CNRS-INSU funding since 2005."
