GPM Ground Validation Southern Appalachian Rain Gauge IPHEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation Southern Appalachian Rain Gauge IPHEx dataset was collected during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign consisting of 45 observation sites. The main goal of IPHEx were to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain, to contribute to the development, evaluation, and improvement of remote sensing precipitation algorithms in support of the GPM mission. These data are available in ASCII-csv format from January 3, 2008 thru December 31, 2014. Data collection began in 2008 due to the entire network being funded by the NASA Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) to make these observations of orographic precipitation in preparation for the IPHEx field campaign.
