GPM Ground Validation Albert Head (AHD) Ground Meteorological Station (MET) OLYMPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation Albert Head (AHD) Ground Meteorological Station (MET) OLYMPEX dataset consists of precipitation rate, reflectivity, pressure, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and wind direction data which were measured by the MET station instruments operated by the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and located in Albert Head, B.C., Canada. The MET station was comprised of a Vaisala FD12P Visibility Sensor, an OTT Parsivel2 Present Weather Sensor, an OTT Pluvio2 Precipitation Gauge, and a Vaisala WXT520 Weather Transmitter. The MET Station was also co-located with a CAX-1 radar to compare measurements from the MET station with the radar scans. These MET Station data files are available from November 13, 2015 through January 17, 2016 in ASCII-CSV and XML formats, with daily browse images of precipitation rate plots in PNG format.
