The GPM Ground Validation Rain Gauges NASA ACHIEVE IPHEx dataset includes data from the OSi Optical Rain Gauge (ORG815), and a standard tipping bucket rain gauge. This instrument is a part of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Aerosol-Cloud-Humidity Interactions, Exploring and Validating Enterprise (ACHIEVE) ground-based mobile laboratory. Data was gathered during the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina from May 1, 2014 through June 15, 2014. 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. Precipitation rate, temperature, and accumulation were measured. Data files are available in the netCDF-3 data format.
