The GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge Pairs IPHEx V2 data measured the amount of fallen precipitation collected by a Model 380 tipping bucket rain gauge made by Met One Instruments, Inc. The gauge had a 30.5 cm diameter catchment funnel. Precipitation was collected to a resolution of 0.254 mm of liquid water for each bucket tip. These gauges measured rainfall over a 1 second interval. This dataset has two types of files, the 1 second rainfall data and a 1-minute cubic-spline averaged rain rate produced using the method described in Wang, 2008. There were two rain gauges located on each station (A or B), each with their own set of data files. More detailed information on the Met One Model 370/380 Precipitation Gauges is available at Data were collected for an extended time period from September 2013 through October 2014, which included the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment. The goal of IPHEx was to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes and the relationship between precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain.
