GPM GROUND VALIDATION MET ONE RAIN GAUGE PAIRS IPHEX V2

The GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge IPHEx V2 data were collected during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) using Met One Model 380 tipping bucket precipitation gauges from September 11, 2013 to October 30, 2014 in the Southern Appalachians, spanning into the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of 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. The dataset contains two ASCII files per rain gauge with two rain gauges on a station platform. The gag dataset is quality-controlled reformatted precipitation recorded in millimeters at a temporal resolution of 1 minute and the gmin dataset contains cubic spline interpolated rain rates in millimeters per hour at 1 minute resolution.
