Linage statement Polarimetric radar variables are measured by the radar in Herwijnen (51.837 N, 5.138 E) in 15 scans with different elevation angles, as well as a bird-bath scan (90 degrees). The variables measured are: corrected and uncorrected reflectivity, Doppler velocity, Doppler spectral width, CCOR, CPA, and SQI (all for both horizontal and vertical polarisations), and smoothed and unsmoothed phiDP, kDP, and rhoHV. The time stamp in the file name corresponds to the start time of the first radar scan.
