GHRC DAAC is now offering the GPM Ground Validation Duke Soil Moisture IPHEx dataset: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/GAUGES/DATA102

The GPM Ground Validation Duke Soil Moisture dataset consists of a collection of various data obtained during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) which occurred in the Southern Appalachians, spanning into the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina from February 27, 2014 through October 17, 2014. The various instruments used included Theta Probes, Infrared Thermometers, 200-A Soil Core Samplers, a Global Positioning System (GPS), Soil Thermometers with Scanning L-band Active Passive (SLAP) flight concurrent survey data, and CS6161 Water Reflectometers. Data are available in a variety of formats based on instrument, including shapefiles, Excel files, Word document files, and ASCII formats. Browse images of site locations and data are available in JPG format.

 

GHRC DAAC has published the IFC Stream Flow IFloodS dataset

http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IFLOODS/GAUGES/DATA201

The GPM Ground Validation Iowa Flood Center (IFC) Stream Flow IFloodS dataset was obtained from the IFC during the Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) field campaign that extended from March 31, 2013 through June 30, 2013. The main goal of IFloodS was to evaluate how well the GPM satellite rainfall data can be used for flood forecasting. The IFC monitors stage levels using sensors attached to the side of bridges throughout Iowa. The sensor data are downloaded from the Iowa Flood Information System (IFIS) as support data for the IFloodS campaign. The IFC Stream Flow data were collected in real-time and provide measurements at 15 minute intervals. These IFC Stream Flow IFloodS data are available in XML format.

 
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.
