This is a selection of b-roll that captures the scientists and instruments at work in Washington State.
B-roll of a Dual-frequency Dual-polarized Doppler Radar (D3R). The D3R is a fully polarimetric, scanning weather radar system operating at the nominal frequencies of 13.91 GHz and 35.56 GHz covering a maximum range of 30 km. The frequencies chosen allow close compatibility with the GPM Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar system, which was selected for flight on the GPM core spacecraft. This footage was captured during the NASA-led field campaign OLYMPEX.
B-roll of the NASA NPOL radar is a research grade S-band, scanning dual-polarimetric radar. It is used to make accurate volumetric measurements of precipitation including rainfall rate, particle size distributions, water contents and precipitation type. This footage was captured during the NASA-led field campaign OLYMPEX.
