GHRC News

 

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Global Satellite Mapping of Precipitation (GSMaP) IFloodS dataset (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IFLOODS/TMI/DATA201).

This dataset consists of rainfall rate estimates from the GSMaP project. The GSMaP global rain rate maps are derived by a collection of algorithms that utilize microwave (MW) radiometer data and geostationary Infrared (IR) data. The GSMaP Precipitation data product is provided on a 0.1 degree spatial resolution every hour and was made available for use during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) field campaign. These data are available in netCDF-4 and binary formats from April 22, 2013 through June 30, 2013. The near real-time GSMaP data can be obtained from the JAXA GSMaP web page.

This dataset contains visible and infrared images from the GOES 14 Imager collected during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign in the southeast region of the United States. The GPM Ground Validation GOES 14 IPHEx dataset files are available in PNG format at 1 minute intervals, for all dates between May 8, 2014 and May 24, 2014.

This dataset contains visible and infrared images from the GOES 15 Imager during the GPM Ground Validation Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) field campaign held in the Pacific Northwest. The GOES 15 images are available for all dates between November 5, 2015 and May 1, 2016 at 15 minute intervals. The GPM Ground Validation GOES 15 OLYMPEX dataset files are available in PNG format.

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Albert Head (AHD) Ground Meteorological Station (MET) OLYMPEX (http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/OLYMPEX/METSTATION/DATA101).

This dataset consists of precipitation rate, reflectivity, pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction data which were measured by the MET station instruments operated by the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and located in Albert Head, B.C., Canada. The MET station was comprised of a Vaisala FD12P Visibility Sensor, an OTT Parsivel2 Present Weather Sensor, an OTT Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge, and a Vaisala WXT520 Weather Transmitter. The MET Station was also co-located with a CAX-1 radar to compare measurements from the MET station with the radar scans. These MET Station data files are available from November 13, 2015 through January 17, 2016 in ASCII-CSV and XML formats, with daily browse images of precipitation rate plots in PNG format.
