GPM Ground Validation Reference Rainfall Data Product IFloodS V1

The GPM Ground Validation Reference Rainfall Data Product IFloodS dataset contains hourly rainfall accumulation estimates over central and northeastern Iowa for the period of 1 May to 16 June, 2013. This product is created by combining ground-based radar estimates collected for the Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) campaign. The goals of the IFloodS campaign were to collect detailed measurements of precipitation at the Earth’s surface using ground instruments and advanced weather radars and to simultaneously collect data from satellites passing overhead. The data are available in gzipped ASCII files.
