The GPM Ground Validation NASA ER-2 Navigation Data IPHEx dataset contains information recorded by an on-board navigation recorder during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx). 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. The IPHEx campaign was part of the development, evaluation, and improvement of remote-sensing precipitation algorithms in support of the GPM mission through NASA GPM GV field campaign (IPHEX_GVFC) and the evaluation of Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE) products for hydrologic forecasting and water resource applications In addition to typical navigation data (e.g. date, time, lat/lon and altitude), the data contain outside meteorological parameters such as wind speed, wind direction, and temperature. These ASCII data files are recorded every second for the length of the flight. Twenty-one flights took place over North Carolina from May 1, 2014 through June 14, 2014.
