GPM Ground Validation High Altitude Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP) OLYMPEX V1a

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

The GPM Ground Validation High-Altitude Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP) OLYMPEX dataset consists of Doppler velocity and reflectivity profiles collected by the High-Altitude Imaging Wind and Rain Airborne Profiler (HIWRAP) onboard the NASA ER-2 high-altitude research aircraft during the Global Precipitation Measurement mission (GPM) Ground Validation Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX). The OLYMPEX field campaign took place between November 2015 and January 2016, with additional ground sampling continuing through February 2016, on the Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The purpose of the campaign was to provide ground-validation data for the measurements taken by instrumentation aboard the GPM Core Observatory satellite. HIWRAP is a Doppler radar that combines conical scan mode measurements at two different frequency bands (Ka- and Ku-band) and two different incidence angles (30 and 40 degrees) to obtain profiles of wind and rain. These Level 1B HIWRAP data files are available from November 10 through December 12, 2015 in netCDF-3 format.
