GHRC News

 
GHRC DAAC has published all 3 NEXRAD OLYMPEX datasets:
 
GPM Ground Validation KATX NEXRAD OLYMPEX (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/OLYMPEX/NEXRAD/DATA101
GPM Ground Validation KLGX NEXRAD OLYMPEX (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/OLYMPEX/NEXRAD/DATA201)
GPM Ground Validation KRTX NEXRAD OLYMPEX (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/OLYMPEX/NEXRAD/DATA301)
 
The GPM Ground Validation NEXRAD OLYMPEX datasets contain data from selected NEXt Generation Weather RADar system (NEXRAD) instruments in operation during the Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) field campaign to help support the ground validation of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM). NEXRAD is a network of 160 stationary S-Band radars dispersed throughout the United States and select locations abroad. Datasets gathered from three NEXRAD stations extend from 22 September 2015 through 01 May 2016 as part of the GPM Ground Validation OLYMPEX data. This datasets contain browse images of base reflectivity observations in the Portable Network Graphic (PNG) format. Base radar reflectivity is the measure of transmitted power returned to the radar after intercepting a target, for example, rain droplets. This information can illustrate the amount and size distribution of water particles in a given unit volume of atmosphere.
 
GHRC has published all 7 of the NEXRAD IPHEX datasets:
 
GPM Ground Validation KCAE NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA101)
GPM Ground Validation KGSP NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA201
GPM Ground Validation KHTX NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA301
GPM Ground Validation KLTX NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA401)
GPM Ground Validation KMHX NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA501)
GPM Ground Validation KMRX NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA601)
GPM Ground Validation KRAX NEXRAD IPHEx (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/NEXRAD/DATA701)
 
The GPM Ground Validation NEXRAD IPHEx datasets contain data from the NEXt Generation Weather RADar system (NEXRAD) instrument in operation during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign to help support the ground validation of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) and evaluate Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE) products for hydrologic forecasting in the southeast region of the United States. NEXRAD is a network of 160 stationary S-Band radars dispersed throughout the United States and select locations abroad. These images extend from May 1, 2014 through June 16, 2014 as part of the GPM Ground Validation IPHEx datasets. The NEXRAD datasets contain browse images of base reflectivity observations in the Portable Network Graphic (PNG) format. Base radar reflectivity is the measure of transmitted power returned to the radar after intercepting a target, for example, rain droplets. This information can illustrate the amount and size distribution of water particles in a given unit volume of atmosphere.

After observing a great impact of our Lightning "Color by Number" poster at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting, we're making a PDF file available for download.

The provisional datasets from the Lightning Imaging Sensor on the International Space Station (ISS LIS) are now released at the GHRC DAAC, available online but not yet cataloged and published. These data include standard and near-real-time products containing lightning observations and background imagery.
Beta datasets are now being retired and should no longer be used.

GHRC DAAC staff attended the 2017 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) held New Orleans, 11-15 December 2017. GHRC-related posters and presentations include:

 

 

  • Chaired Sessions

    • IN11D:  Developing  Innovative Tools and Services to Enable Data Use Across Broad User Communities, eLightning session chaired by Leigh Sinclair and Amanda Weigel, Monday morning poster sessions

    • H33A/C: Analysis in Remote Sensing, Novel Data Streams, and Social Media for Natural Hazard Monitoring, Research, and Preparedness I and II, room 245 and Poster Hall D-F
