This data set provides level 2 (L2) calibrated hourly precipitation (cm/hr) from rain gauges at seven North American sites as part of the Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) project. Three gauges were installed at each site. Initial sampling began at three sites in September 2011 and additional sites were added during 2012 and 2013. All sampling concluded in December 2015. The AirMOSS project used an airborne radar instrument to estimate root-zone soil moisture at 10 study sites across North America. These precipitation data were collected in conjunction with in-ground soil moisture data in order to calibrate and validate the AirMOSS data.
