Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
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.
