GPM Ground Validation Hydro-Estimator IFloodS V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation Hydro-Estimator IFloodS dataset contains rainfall rate estimates derived using NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) infrared (IR) brightness temperature data by researchers at the NOAA Center of Satellite Applications and Research’s (STAR) using the Hydro-Estimator (H-E) algorithm. Rainfall rate estimates are produced every 15 minutes throughout the continental United States, but for this dataset, have been subset to the Iowa region for the Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) field campaign in support of Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) ground validation. These data are available in netCDF-3 format and consist of rain rate values from April 25, 2013 through June 30, 2013.
