GPM GROUND VALIDATION MISSION REPORTS GCPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation Mission Reports GCPEx dataset consists of various reports filed by the scientists during the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) campaign which took place from January 15 - February 29, 2012 in Ontario, Canada; however, this dataset spans from September 4, 2011 to May 11, 2012. GCPEx addressed shortcomings in GPM snowfall retrieval algorithm by collecting microphysical properties, associated remote sensing observations, and coordinating model simulations of precipitating snow. Report categories include the Mission Scientist, Mission Manager, Instrument Scientists, Weather Forecasts and Plan of Day. Many reports have additional information attached.
