GPM Ground Validation Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model LPVEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Images LPVEx includes model data simulated by the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model for 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 WRF model provided simulations of the precipitation events that were observed during the campaign. The LPVEx WRF dataset files are available from September 20 through October 20, 2010 in netCDF-3 format.
