GPM GROUND VALIDATION UND CITATION CLOUD MICROPHYSICS GCPEX V2

The GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics GCPEx dataset includes instrument measurements of cloud microphysics, state of atmosphere parameters. bulk aerosols, three-dimensional winds, and turbulence. These measurements were taken by the University of North Dakota's (UND) Cessna Citation aircraft, an in situ platform used during the GCPEx campaign. The GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics GCPEx data are stored as a separate file for each flight, including both a primary file containing direct and derived parameters, and raw data for each cloud instrument aboard the Citation. This dataset contains measurements collected across 12 data missions from January 19, 2012 through February 24, 2012. Navigation files for this dataset were updated July 2015.
