GPM Ground Validation Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) ICE POP V1

The GPM Ground Validation Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) ICE POP dataset was collected during the International Collaborative Experiments for Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (ICE POP) field campaign in South Korea. The two major objectives of ICE POP were to study severe winter weather events in regions of complex terrain and improve the short-term forecasting of such events. These data contributed to Global Precipitation Measurements mission Ground Validation (GPM GV) campaign efforts to improve satellite estimates of orographic winter precipitation. This dataset consists of precipitation data including precipitation amount, precipitation rate, reflectivity in Rayleigh regime, liquid water content, drop diameter, and drop concentration. Data are available in ASCII format from October 31, 2015 through July 1, 2018. It should be noted that this dataset extends prior to the field campaign.
