GPM Ground Validation Daily Precipitation OLYMPEX V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation Daily Precipitation Olympic Mountain Experiment (OLYMPEX) dataset consists of a single netCDF-4 data file containing estimates of daily precipitation, both rainfall and snowfall amounts, on a 1/32 degree spatial resolution grid covering the extent of the OLYMPEX field campaign region in the Olympic Mountains of the state of Washington. This data product was created for the GPM Ground Validation OLYMPEX field campaign. These VIC precipitation estimates are based on NOAA WSR-88D radar and rain gauge data incorporated in NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) local gauge bias-corrected radar quantitative precipitation estimation (QPE) model (product Q3GC) and the Mountain Mapper QPE model (product Q3MM). The VIC hydrology model was used to invert the snow water equivalent (SWE) values to derive precipitation through adjustment of the precipitation-weighting factor on a grid cell by grid cell basis. The VIC precipitation data are available from October 1, 2015 through April 30, 2016.
