The GPM Ground Validation Conical Scanning Millimeter-wave Imaging Radiometer (CoSMIR) IPHEx dataset includes data gathered during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina from May 7, 2014 through June 14, 2014. COSMIS was used as an airborne high-frequency simulator for the GPM Microeave Imager (GMI), an instrument on the GPM core satellites which was launched in 2014. The COSMIR instrument can acquire both conical and cross-track scan data simultaneously in a given flight satisfying the requirements of the Precipitation Measurement Mission (PMM) algorithm development team. The dataset provides well-calibrated radiometric data from 9 channels between 50 and 183 GHz with accuracy on the order of +-1K. All channels besides the 89 and 165.5 GHz are horizontally polarized. Data is available in ASCII text files; browse image files are also available.
