The GPM Ground Validation GCPEX Snow Microphysics Case Study characterizes the 3-D microphysical evolution and distribution of snow in context of the thermodynamic environment observed during the February 24th, 2012 event of the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx). The GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment occurred in Ontario, Canada during the winter season of 2011-2012. GCPEx addressed shortcomings in the GPM snowfall retrieval algorithm by collecting microphysical properties, associated remote sensing observations, and coordinated model simulations of snow. This case study includes data from the Airborne Second Generation Precipitation Radar (APR-2), Dual-frequency Dual-polarized Doppler Radar (D3R), Dual Polarization Radiometer and the NCAR Cloud Microphysics Particle Probes.
