The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the TCSP European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) dataset. This dataset consists of three-hour forecast/analysis data for the Tropical Cloud Systems and Processes (TCSP) field campaign, supplied by ECMWF. The TCSP field campaign was conducted from July 1 through July 27, 2005 out of the Juan Santamaria Airfield in San Jose, Costa Rica. TCSP collected data for research and documentation of cyclogenesis, the interaction of temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind, and air pressure that creates ideal birthing conditions for tropical storms,...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the ACES Aircraft and Mechanical Data. This dataset consists of aircraft (e.g. pitch, roll, yaw) and mechanical (e.g. aircraft engine speed, tail commands, fuel levels) data recorded by the Altus II Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Altus II UAV) system during the Altus Cumulus Electrification Study (ACES) based at the Naval Air Facility Key West in Florida. ACES aimed to provide extensive observations of the cloud electrification process and its effects by using the Altus II UAV to collect cloud top observations of thunderstorms. The campaign also worked to validate...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GRIP Hurricane and Tropical Storm Forecasts dataset. This dataset consists of tropical cyclone model forecast tracks archived during the NASA Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) field campaign. GRIP was one of three hurricane field campaigns conducted during the 2010 Atlantic/Pacific hurricane season. This tri-agency effort included NASA GRIP, the NSF Pre-Depression Investigation of Cloud-systems in the Tropics (PREDICT) and the NOAA Intensity Forecasting Experiment 2010 (IFEX10). The hurricane and tropical storm forecasts data files are available from August 12 through November 14, 2010 in ASCII text format with browse files in KML format, viewable in Google Earth. The ASCII text files contain 5-...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the NAMMA Raw DC-8 Dropsonde dataset. This dataset  consists of high-resolution vertical profiles of ambient pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction obtained by the DC-8 dropsonde system during the NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) field campaign. The NAMMA field campaign was based in the Cape Verde Island, 350 miles off the coast of Senegal in west Africa. Commencing in August 2006, NASA scientists employed surface observation networks and aircraft to characterize the evolution and structure of African...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) ICE-POP dataset. This dataset includes precipitation measurements and video images collected by the Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) during the International Collaborative Experiments for Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (ICE-POP) field campaign in South Korea. The two major objectives of ICE-POP were to study severe winter weather events in regions of complex terrain and improve the short-term forecasting of such events. These data contributed to the Global...
