The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the Quality Controlled Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Science Data and the Quality Controlled Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) on International Space Station (ISS) Backgrounds datasets. These datasets were collected by the LIS instrument mounted on the ISS and are used to detect the distribution and variability of total lightning occurring in the Earth’s tropical and subtropical regions. The LIS instrument makes measurements during both day and night with high detection efficiency. The Science Data consists of...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the newest version of the Lightning Instrument Package (LIP) IMPACTS dataset. This dataset consists of electrical field measurements of lightning and navigation data collected by the Lightning Instrument Package (LIP) flown onboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S. Atlantic coast (2020-2022). IMPACTS aimed to (1) Provide observations...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published five NEXRAD IMPACTS datasets. These datasets consist of Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) Level II surveillance data that were collected at 31 NEXRAD sites from January 1 to March 1, 2020 during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S Atlantic Coast. The campaign aimed to (1) Provide observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation,...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) IMPACTS dataset. This datasets consists of passive microwave observations at four frequencies; 10.7, 19.35, 37.1, and 85.5 GHz. With high spatial and temporal resolution, AMPR can derive cloud, precipitation, water vapor, and surface properties. This dataset was collected during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the ER-2 X-band Radar (EXRAD) IMPACTS dataset. This dataset consists of radar reflectivity and Doppler velocity estimates collected by the EXRAD onboard the NASA ER-2 high-altitude research aircraft. These data were gathered during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) field campaign. IMPACTS was a three-year sequence of winter season deployments conducted to study snowstorms over the U.S Atlantic Coast (2020-2022). The campaign aimed to (1) Provide observations critical to understanding the...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Environment Canada (EC) Weather Station XET C3VP dataset. This dataset consists of surface meteorological data collected at the Environment Canada (EC) XET station at the Centre for Atmospheric Research Experiments (CARE) during the Canadian CloudSat/CALIPSO Validation Project (C3VP) field campaign. The campaign took place in southern Canada in support of multiple science missions, including the NASA GPM mission, in order to improve the modeling and remote sensing of winter precipitation. The XET C3VP dataset file includes...
