The GPM Ground Validation Two-Dimensional Video Disdrometer (2DVD) IPHEx dataset was collected during the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) held in North Carolina. The goal of IPHEx was to evaluate the accuracy of satellite precipitation measurements and use the collected data for hydrology models in the region. Collected from five sites, the data contains daily ASCII files with information on individual hydrometeors including the number of hydrometeors, raindrop size distribution, and particle concentration. Overall data dates range from April 23, 2014 through June 17, 2014; exact dates may vary per site.
