GHRC has published the guide for the GPM Ground Validation NOAA Surface Meteorological Station MC3E dataset. The data collected for the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E) at the NOAA Southern Great Plains Facility includes wind speed and direction, temperature and humidity, and precipitation. The instruments gathering this data were a propeller wind monitor located 10 meters above the ground, a temperature and humidity sensor at the ground, and a tipping rain gauge at the ground.

Environment Canada (EC) collected data from the Micro Rain Radar (MRR) during the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) in Ontario, Canada during the winter season 2012. Operating at 24 GHz the MRR, a vertically pointing Doppler radar, retrieved quantitative rain rates, drop size distributions, radar reflectivity, fall velocities on vertical profiles up to several kilometers above the unit.


MC3E logoGHRC has completed documentation for the four GPM Ground Validation NOAA S-Band Profiler datasets and two GPM Ground Validation NOAA UHF 449 Profiler datasets from the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E), a GPM Ground Validation field campaign.



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 is supporting the ongoing Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) Field Experiment with a collaboration portal for the mission science team which provides for near-real time data acquisition; data access, visualization and map-based display; and science and instrument status reports.  IFloodS is featured on the EarthData web site as the DAAC Image of the Week.
