GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics OLYMPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics OLYMPEX dataset includes measurements of cloud microphysics, state of the atmosphere parameters, three-dimensional winds, and turbulence. These measurements were taken during the OLYMPEX campaign by the University of North Dakota’s (UND) Cessna Citation II aircraft over a series of 20 flights totaling roughly 60 flight hours. The UND Citation Cloud Microphysics data are stored as separate files for each flight, with a primary (*.olympex) file containing both direct and derived parameters. Raw data files for each instrument are also archived for investigators who wish to use their own processing software. Data are available from flights that occurred from November 12, 2015 through December 19, 2015 in ASCII, ASCII-csv, and binary formats, while browse images are available in PNG format.
