GHRC Published UND Cloud Microphysics IMPACTS dataset

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the UND Cloud Microphysics IMPACTS dataset. This dataset consists of cloud particle measurements collected during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S Atlantic Coast (2020-2022). The campaign aimed to (1) Provide observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation, organization, and evolution; (2) Examine how the microphysical characteristics and likely growth mechanisms of snow particles vary across snowbands; and (3) Improve snowfall remote sensing interpretation and modeling to significantly advance prediction capabilities. The UND Cloud Microphysics IMPACTS dataset files are stored in ASCII format from January 25 through February 26, 2020. It should be noted that NASA P-3 flights did not occur each day during the field campaign, therefore there are missing days between January 25, 2020 and February 26, 2020.
