GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge Pairs Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) V1

The GPM Ground Validation Met One Rain Gauge Pairs Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) dataset contains rain rate data from 4 rain gauge networks located in Virginia and Maryland near the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF): Nassawadox, Pocomoke, HalfDeg and Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) Assorted Gauges. These data were collected in support of the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation (GV) campaign. The Met One Rain Gauge Pairs are tipping bucket precipitation gauges which collect precipitation amounts and calculate rain rates. The dataset contains 3 products: formatted gauge tips (GAG), interpolated one-minute rain rates for a year (GMIN), and interpolated one-minute rain rates for a month (2A56). Data are available in ASCII format for the period of April 10, 2012 through October 1, 2018.
