GPM Ground Validation Goddard Profiling Algorithm (GPROF) 2014 IFloodS V3

The GPM Ground Validation Goddard Profiling Algorithm (GPROF) 2014 IFloodS dataset consists of precipitation data derived from microwave radiometers and sounders located on multiple satellites, including the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F16-18, the Global Change Observation Mission – Water "Shizuku" (GCOM-W1), the European Space Agency's (ESA’s) Meteorological Operational satellite programme (MetOp) series, and NOAA's Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) series. The data have been consistently processed for the Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) field campaign conducted in eastern Iowa during spring 2013. 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 GPROF 2014 data files are available from March 31 to July 2, 2013 in HDF-5 format.
