Commercial microwave link data for rainfall monitoring

Dataset

Description

Dataset of commercial microwave link (CML) data, which can be used to estimate path-average rainfall between telephone towers. Contains microwave frequency, end date & time of reading, minimum & maximum received power, path length, coordinates, and link identifier. For a network of on average ~2500 links covering the Netherlands having a temporal resolution of 15 min. The dataset, which consists of two files, can be used with the open-source R package RAINLINK (https://github.com/overeem11/RAINLINK) to estimate path-averaged rainfall and to make rainfall maps. Data have been used in the mentioned papers under "link to publication", but these use either a subset of the dataset or also other data. A manuscript which will describe the exact characteristics of this dataset is in preparation
