IMProToo - Improved Mrr Processing Tool

IMProToo is an improved processing method for Micro Rain radar. It is especially suited for snow observations and provides besides other things effective reflectivity, Doppler velocity and spectral width. The method features a noise removal based on recognition of the most significant peak and a dynamic dealiasing routine which allows observations even if the Nyquist velocity range is exceeded. To software requires MRR raw data, it does not work with Metek's standard products MRR Averaged Data or Processed Data.


The software is still beta, especially the documentation needs to be enhanced. The most recent version is 0.95_10

How to install

The following python packages need to be installed:

  • numpy
  • matplotlib (for plotting only)
  • netcdf4-python OR python-netcdf (for saving the results only)

An installation routine is not provided yet, Instead, save the provided files in your working library and import the package using “import IMProToo”. If you save the files in another directory, you have to add this directory to your python path.
