GPM Ground Validation Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) OLYMPEX V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) OLYMPEX dataset was collected during the OLYMPEX field campaign held at Washington's Olympic Peninsula during the intense observation period of November 2015 to the end of January 2016. The dataset consists of data collected by 16 APUs. The APU is an optical laser-disdrometer based on single particle extinction that measures particle size and fall velocity. It consists of the Parsivel2 developed by OTT in Germany and supporting hardware developed by University of Alabama. This APU dataset provides precipitation data including precipitation amount, precipitation rate, reflectivity in Rayleigh regime, liquid water content, drop diameter, and drop concentration. Data are available in ASCII format.
