The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) ICE POP dataset. This dataset was collected 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 Global Precipitation Measurement mission Ground Validation (GPM GV) campaign efforts to improve satellite estimates of...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) LPVEx dataset. This dataset was collected during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) field campaign. The LPVEx field campaign took place around the Gulf of Finland in September and October of 2010. The goal of the campaign was to provide additional high altitude, light rainfall measurements for the improvement of GPM satellite precipitation algorithms. The MRR is a Biral/Metek 24 GHz (K-band) vertically oriented Frequency Modulated...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission ground validation Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) radiosonde data set. The Vaisala radiosondes were used to produce vertical profiles of atmospheric temperature, pressure, humidity, and winds. The radiosondes were launched from two locations: Kumpula and Vantaa, Finland.  The LPVEx field campaign took place around the Gulf of Finland in September and October, 2010. However, the Vantaa launch site record extends through January 2011. The campaign was to provide additional...

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) Cloud Radar System (CRS) dataset. The CRS provides high-resolution profiles of reflectivity and Doppler velocity at aircraft nadir along the flight track. The CRS was flown aboard a NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft during the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) field campaign. The campaign took place from March to May 2017 in support of post-launch L1b and L2+ product validation of the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM). Data files in netCDF-3 format are available for...
