The Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) has published the GPM Ground Validation ACHIEVE W-Band Cloud Radar IPHEx (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/WBAND/DATA101) dataset. The data were gathered during the the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) Intensive Observing Period (IOP) in North Carolina from May 1, 2014 through June 15, 2014. The dataset includes data from the ProSensing 94 GHz W-Band cloud radar instrument, which is part of the NASA Goddard Space Flight...

The AMSR Science Investigator-led Processing System (SIPS) at the GHRC DAAC has completed integration and testing of the AMSR Unified (AMSR-U) version 1-beta Level-2 Land, including end-to-end testing with the NSIDC DAAC. The Level-2 Land algorithm is the first generating AMSR-U standard products and is now running routinely in production at the SIPS. The AMSR-U Level 2B surface soil moisture products are generated from the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) AMSR2 L1R brightness temperatures using two distinct algorithms: the Normalized Polarization Difference (NPD) algorithm and the Single Channel Algorithm (SCA).

GHRC DAAC staff have published a new version of the dropsonde dataset from the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) campaign in 2010. The GRIP DC-8 Dropsonde V3 dataset (DOI: https://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GRIP/DROPSONDE/DATA202) corrects a temperature dependent dry bias in the relative humidity measurements that was discovered in all dropsondes (RD94) and mini-dropsondes (NRD94) collected from 2010 to present. All files have had a correction applied to the RH measurements and dewpoint temperatures have been recomputed as well...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the GPM Ground Validation Iowa X-band Polarimetric Mobile Doppler Weather Radars IFloodS dataset (DOI: http://dx.doi.org//10.5067/GPMGV/IFLOODS/XPOL/DATA201). These data were gathered during the IFloodS campaign from April to June 2013 throughout central and northeastern Iowa. Four X-band Polarimetric (XPOL) Mobile Doppler Weather Radars were used to collected high-resolution observations of precipitation. The data consists of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, spectrum...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the GPM Ground Validation Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) WFF dataset (DOI: https://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/WFF/2DVD/DATA201). These data were gathered in support of Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) in Wallops Island, Virginia from June 7, 2012 to March 5, 2014. These data measured the size, equivalent diameter, volume, fall speed, oblateness, cross-sectional area of raindrops, particle...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) NASA ACHIEVE IPHEx dataset (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/GPMGV/IPHEX/MRR/DATA201). These data were gathered during the Global Precipitation Measurement Ground Validation (GPM GV) Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina from May 1, 2014 through June 15, 2014. The dataset includes data from the Metek Micro Rain Radar (MRR) instrument, which is part of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC)...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge Pairs IPHEx V2 dataset from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation campaign. Data were collected by tipping bucket rain gauges for an extended time period from October 2013 through October 2014, which included the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment. Precipitation was collected to a resolution of 0.254 mm of liquid water for each bucket tip. These gauges measure rainfall...

The Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Global Hawk Navigation dataset (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/HS3/NAV/DATA201). This dataset consists of the real-time navigation and housekeeping data that was acquired from various instruments aboard the Global Hawk including the navigation system and the Global Hawk flight computer. The data are in the Interagency Working Group standard format number 1 (IWG1), a simple ASCII comma-separated value (CSV) format supported by all NASA and...
