The GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Navigation Data GCPEx V2 dataset was collected by the Cessna Citation II Research, which was aircraft, owned, and operated by the University of North Dakota (UND), participated in the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) by serving as an in situ microphysics sampling platform. GCPEx addressed shortcomings in the GPM snowfall retrieval algorithm by collecting microphysical properties associated remote sensing observations, and coordinated model simulations of precipitating snow. These data sets were collected to aid in the achievement Data User Guide of the overarching goal of GCPEx, which is to characterize the ability of multi-frequency active and passive microwave sensors to detect and estimate falling snow. The GCPEx navigation data set collected wind speed amongst several other parameters. It would also be beneficial to list the other parameters it collected.
