The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Optical Disdrometer (ODM) LPVEx dataset. This dataset consists of precipitation particle size distribution data collected by the Eigenbrodt Optical Disdrometer (ODM) deployed onboard the RV Aranda research vessel. ODM was specifically designed to measure precipitation on ship-based platforms that experience high and variable winds. ODM’s ability to maintain the optimal orientation with respect to the wind allows it to obtain more accurate precipitation measurements in this type of environment. The ODM data were collected as part of...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC updated the GPM Ground Validation McGill Vertical Pointing X-Band (VertiX) Radar GCPEx dataset by adding GIF imagery. This dataset consists of radar reflectivity and Doppler velocity data collected by the Vertically Pointing X-band (VertiX) radar during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) field campaign in Ontario, Canada during the 2011-2012 winter season. VertiX can detect all precipitation targets and some ice clouds, as well as measure the Doppler velocity of precipitation targets. These measurements contributed to the overarching goal of GCPEx to collect various snowfall data for the improvement of GPM satellite winter precipitation estimates. These data files are...
