All four IFloodS NEXRAD datasets now available at GHRC DAAC

 

The Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC has published all four of the GPM Ground Validation NEXRAD Level III IFloodS datasets. The purpose of the IFloodS campaign was to help support the ground validation of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM). NEXt Generation Weather RADar system (NEXRAD) Level-II data were previously published.  These Level-III NEXRAD precipitation products were gathered from Unidata for four NEXRAD stations in the vicinity of the IFloodS campaign during March 29, 2013 through June 18, 2013. These datasets contain data files of digital instantaneous precipitation rate (DPR) and storm total accumulation estimates (DTA) in NIDS binary format. For a complete archive of data from each station beyond the IFloodS time period, please utilize the NOAA archives at Amazon Web Services and Open Common Consortium.
