GPM Ground Validation Joss-Waldvogel Disdrometer (JW) LPVEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation Joss-Waldvogel Disdrometer (JW) LPVEx dataset consists of precipitation drop size distribution (DSD) data collected by the Joss-Waldvogel (JW) disdrometer during the GPM Ground Validation Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx). This field campaign took place around the Gulf of Finland in September and October of 2010. The goal of the campaign was to provide additional high-latitude, light rainfall measurements for the improvement of GPM satellite precipitation algorithms. The JW disdrometer dataset files are available in ASCII text format from September 10 through November 9, 2010.
