Wherein, subfolders refer to the location in question, which may be one of the following: Auxvasse, Bradford, Brunswick, Capen Park, Jefferson Farm, Sanborn, Vandalia, Versailles, or Williamsburg.
Within those subfolders based on the station name, it is separated based upon day. Within these sub-subfolders, the files have the following naming convention:
"Algorithm.mat" where "Algorithm" designates the rain rate equation (or algorithm) that has been chosen. For this example, we are using the "DRRZ" algorithm.
The file format when loaded into MATLAB, since it is a .mat file, is an s x 3 grid, where the center of the radar is assumed to be at the point (0,0), and values correspond to the estimated hourly accumulation of precipitation (in mm) at each grid cell. Column 1 corresponds to the date (YYYYMMDD), Column 2 is the time (in UTC), and column three is the rain rate.
