GPM Ground Validation Self-Calibrating Multivariate Precipitation Retrieval (SCaMPR) IPHEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation Self-Calibrating Multivariate Precipitation Retrieval (SCaMPR) IPHEx dataset contains rainfall rate measurements derived using the SCaMPR algorithm to combine GOES infrared (IR) data and derived parameters as inputs. The SCaMPR algorithm is calibrated using microwave rainfall estimates from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) and Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU). This dataset contains the values for the time period of the IPHEx campaign from April 30, 2015 to June 17, 2015. The IPHEx campaign was designed to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes and determine the relationship between precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain. These data are available in netCDF-4 format, while browse images are available in GIF format.
