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 updated the guide for the NAMMA Lightning ZEUS Data dataset with information from the Principal Investigator. The NAMMA Lightning ZEUS Data gathered lightning data from the World-ZEUS Long Range Lightning Monitoring Network Data obtained from sferics located at thirteen ground stations spread across the European and African continents and Brazil for the NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) campaign held in 2006 in the Cape Verde Islands, 350 miles off the coast of Senegal in west Africa.


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.

LPVEx logo

GHRC has published two datasets from Light Precipitation Evaluation Experiment (LPVEx):  GPM Ground Validation Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) LPVEx and GPM Ground Validation Wyoming King Air Cloud Microphysics LPVEx. Both of these datasets’ instruments gathered data while aboard the University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) during September and October 2010 in the Gulf of Finland. The Wyoming Cloud Radar, a Doppler radar, has reflectivity observations and doppler velocity measurements. The Cloud Microphysics dataset has measurements for static pressure, dew point temperature, relative humidity, mixing ratio, liquid water content and droplet concentration from multiple instruments. Both datasets contain aircraft navigational parameters.


GCPEX logoGHRC has published the GPM Ground Validation Compact Scanning Millimeter-wave Imaging Radiometer (CoSMIR) GCPEx dataset. The CoSMIR plays the role as an airborne high-frequency simulator for the GPM Microwave Imager (GMI), which will launch in 2014.  The CoSMIR was modified with a new scan mode to acquire both conical and cross-track scan data simultaneously in a given flight satisfying the requirements of the Precipitation Measurement Mission (PMM) algorithm development team.  This CoSMIR dataset provides well-calibrated radiometric data from 9 channels between 50-183GHz with the  accuracy on the order of +-1K.  All channels besides the 89 and 165.5 GHz are horizontally polarized.
