GPM Ground Validation NCAR Particle Probes IPHEx V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation NCAR Particle Probes IPHEx dataset consists of Ice Water Content (IWC), particle concentration normalized by bin width, and total particle concentration data that were collected from three instruments on the University of North Dakota (UND) Citation aircraft, the PMS Two-Dimensional Cloud probe (2D-C), the SPEC Two-Dimensional Stereo probe (2D-S), and the SPEC High Volume Precipitation Spectrometer 3 (HVPS-3) during the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) campaign from May 9, 2014 to June 12, 2014. All instruments are two-dimensional optical array probes which record images of particles that travel through the sampling area. Data files are available in ASCII format using the NASA Ames format specification. Browse images of instrument array 5-sec summaries are available in .png format.
