The GPM Ground Validation Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) IPHEx dataset was acquired by the AMPR instrument during the IPHEx field campaign in North Carolina from May 1, 2014 through June 14, 2014. The GPM Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) was held in North Carolina during the months of April-June 2014. The goal of IPHEx was to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes and the relationship between precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain. These files included the Level 2 calibrated and georeferenced brightness temperature for the four AMPR-observed frequencies (10, 19, 37, 85 GHz). These data are archived in a netCDF-4 format that contains the calibrated brightness temperatures in addition to ER-2 aircraft navigation and instrument scene georectification variables. A set of Python software has been developed for reading, plotting, and providing some additional analysis capabilities. The AMPR instrument is managed by NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.
