GPM Ground Validation NOAA X-band Polarimetric Radar (NOXP) IPHEx V1

Metadata Updated: August 9, 2018

The GPM Ground Validation NOAA X-band dual-Polarimetric radar (NOXP) IPHEx dataset consists of differential reflectivity, differential phase shift, co-polar cross correlation, radial Doppler velocity, spectrum width, signal index, melting layer index, reflectivity, drop size distribution, and rainfall rate observations, as well as other radar parameters, collected by NOXP mobile radar during the GPM Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign. The IPHEx field campaign occurred in the Southern Appalachians, spanning into the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina. The NOXP radar, operated by the NOAA National Severe Storm Laboratory (NSSL), was positioned in the Pigeon River basin of the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. NOXP data are available in netCDF-3 format for dates between April 21, 2014 through June 15, 2014. The dataset includes weather condition photos taken at the NOXP radar site in JPG format.
