GPM GROUND VALIDATION IOWA X-BAND POLARIMETRIC MOBILE DOPPLER WEATHER RADARS IFLOODS V1

The GPM Ground Validation Iowa X-band Polarimetric Mobile Doppler Weather Radars IFloodS dataset was gathered during the IFloodS campaign from April to June 2013 throughout central and northeastern Iowa. The Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) was a ground measurement campaign that took place throughout Iowa from May 1 to June 15, 2013. The main goal of IFloodS was to evaluate how well the GPM satellite rainfall data can be used for flood forecasting. Four X-band Polarimetric (XPOL) Mobile Doppler Weather Radars were used to collected high-resolution observations of precipitation. The data consists of reflectivity, Doppler velocity, spectrum width, differential reflectivity, differential phase, copolar correlation coefficient, and sound-to-noise ratios. These data are available in netCDF, and browse image files are available in .png format.
