The GPM Ground Validation ACHIEVE W-Band Cloud Radar IPHEx dataset was gathered during 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 Center (GSFC) Aerosol, Cloud, Humidity, Interactions Exploring and Validating Enterprise (ACHIEVE) ground-based mobile laboratory. The W-Band cloud radar is a scanning 94 GHz dual-polarization (horizontal transmission and co- and cross-polar receiving) Doppler radar used for observing liquid and ice clouds and light precipitation. The instrument also measures co- and cross-polar reflectivity, radial velocity, Doppler spectrum width, and signal-to-noise ratio. Linear depolarization ratio was derived from the measured parameters. During the IPHEx campaign the W-Band radar was used exclusively in vertical-pointing mode. Data files are available in netCDF3 data format.
