GPM Ground Validation National Mosaic and Multi-Sensor QPE (NMQ) System IPHEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation National Mosaic and Multi-Sensor QPE (NMQ) System IPHEx dataset consists of six different data products: precipitation rate, hourly rainfall accumulation, daily rainfall accumulation, hybrid scan reflectivity, three-dimensional reflectivity, and vertically integrated liquid content estimates. These data products were created using the NOAA NMQ System which ingests Weather Surveillance Radar 88 Doppler (WSR-88D) radar data, Rapid Update Cycle (RUC) model analysis fields, and Hydrometeorological Automated Data Systems (HADS) gauge data. The files provided in this dataset are from system output during the GPM Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign that occurred in the Southern Appalachians, spanning into the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina. These data are available in ASCII and netCDF-4 formats for dates between April 30, 2014 through June 16, 2014.
