GHRC’s application for membership in the International Council for Science (ICSU) World Data System (WDS) has been accepted by the WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC). Pending the finalization of a signed agreement with ICSU, GHRC will be a Regular Member of ICSU-WDS.

 

GHRC has completed documentation for the MC3E GPM Ground Validation Chill and Pawnee Radar datasets. These radar were located at the CSU-CHILL location were collected to support the NASA ER-2 instrumentation for the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E), a GPM Ground Validation field campaign.

 

GHRC has installed and configured a new disk-based Sun Storage 720 archive.  Systems administrators and data managers are planning directory layout, archive processes and migration from the existing tape-based Sun Storage L700 system.  The new archive will start with 100 TB (usable) and is scalable to up to 2.6 PB raw capacity.

 

The GHRC has completed the MSFC-mandated upgrade of all web servers to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).  IPv6 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion.

GHRC added  the GPM Ground Validation Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) GCPEx dataset to its GPM GCPEX dataset collection.  Collected from six sites in Ontario, Canada, the data contains daily ASCII files with information on individual snowflakes and hydrometeors, and also binary files preprocessed from raw camera data. Overall data dates range from 27 October 2011 through 27 February 2012 depending on the specific site. GHRC also has related 2DVD datasets for data from the LPVEX and  MC3E experiments and data collected at the National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC).
