The GPM Ground Validation Total Sky Imager NASA ACHIEVE IPHEx dataset includes data from the Yankee Scientific TSI880 Total Sky Imager instrument, part of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) ACHIEVE ground-based mobile laboratory. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation (GV) campaign used a variety of methods for validation of GPM satellite constellation measurements prior to launch of the GPM Core Satellite, which launched on February 27, 2014. The validation effort included numerous GPM-specific and joint-agency/international external field campaigns, using state of the art cloud and precipitation observational infrastructure. Data was gathered during the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina from May 6, 2014 through June 15, 2014. The TSI880 instrument is an automatic, full-color sky imager system providing real-time digital display of daytime sky conditions; the output of the TSI880 is full color digital images. Data files are available in the JPEG image format.
