We're planning to retire the Community Data Portal (CDP) after nearly 15 years of service. The most active datasets will be migrated to the Climate Data Gateway website. We tentatively plan to shutdown the CDP service by Jan 1, 2018. Please contact us with questions or concerns.
UMRBPP Radar: NIDS KUDX Vertically Integrated Liquid (VIL) Data Set
Publisher: EOL Data Support  [contact email: eol-datahelp AT ucar.edu]  [web page]
Project: UMRBPP > Upper Missouri River Basin Pilot Project
Summary: This data set contains the Nexrad Information Dissemination Service (NIDS) Vertically Integrated Liquid (VIL) product. The VIL products are generated whenever precipitation echoes are detected. It displays VIL values summed for all elevation angles within the volume scan. It covers a range 230 km with a resolution of 2.2 by 2.2 nmi. It is updated once every volume scan (typically every 5-10 min) and includes 16 data levels. The units are kg/m^2. Data are available for most periods during the UMRBPP (5 April to 5 May 1999). Data are available from the Rapid City, SD (KUDX) radar site. These data are in the original NIDS format. These data were not quality controlled by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Joint Office for Science Support (UCAR/JOSS). This data set is quite large in terms of the number of files (4500). Please take this into consideration when placing your data order.
