The GPM Ground Validation NASA Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) IPHEx dataset was acquired by multiple parsivel instruments during the GPM Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx), which took place in western North Carolina. IPHEx sought to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes, and the relationship between precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain. The APU, an optical disdrometer based on single particle extinction, measures particle size, and fall velocity. ASCII encoded data files contain information on the drop size distribution and integral precipitation parameters such as precipitation rate, reflectivity, and mass-weighted mean diameter.
