GPM Ground Validation NASA ER-2 Navigation Data IPHEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation NASA ER-2 Navigation Data IPHEx dataset was gathered during the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina. The ER-2 Aircraft flew during the IPHEx field campaign to aid in GPM validation. The science instruments onboard the aircraft acted as a proxy for GPM satellite instruments. Twenty-one ER-2 flights occurred during May 1, 2014 through June 14, 2014. The dataset consists of navigation data, as well as meteorological parameters collected by an on-board navigation recorder every second of the flight. The data are available in ASCII and XML formats.
