NASA's GPM Ground Validation program assisted the Korean Meteorological Administration (KMA) with the execution of the International Collaborative Experiment for the Pyeongchang Olympics and Paralympics (ICE-POP) 2018 field campaign. GPM provided ground-based instruments for forecast and research studies before, during and after the 2018 Winter Olympic Games (February 9-25, 2018) in PyeongChang, South Korea. Preparations for ICE-POP 2018 began In November 2016 when a Letter of Agreement (LOA) was concluded between NASA and KMA. ICE-POP provided GPM ground validation valuable data for researching frozen and mixed phase precipitation in complex terrain. GPM radars and ground instruments were used for both nowcasting and forecasting support during Olympics operations.
