The GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge Pairs OLYMPEX dataset was collected from January 1, 2015 to June 20, 2016 during the GPM Ground Validation Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) field campaign, which was held in the Pacific Northwest. The Met One Rain Gauge Pairs are tipping bucket precipitation gauges which collect precipitation amounts and calculate rain rates. This dataset contains two ASCII-tsv files per rain gauge and two rain gauges are located on each station platform. The ‘gag’ file is quality-controlled reformatted precipitation data recorded in millimeters at a temporal resolution of 1 second. The ‘gmin’ file contains cubic spline interpolated rain rates in millimeters per hour at 1 minute resolution.
