GPM GROUND VALIDATION CARE SATELLITE OVERPASS IMAGES GCPEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation CARE Satellite Overpass GCPEx Images are the satellite overpass images for the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx), which occurred in Ontario, Canada, January 15, 2012 through February 28, 2012. GCPEx addressed limitations in the GPM snowfall retrieval algorithm through the collection of microphysical properties, associated remote sensing observations, and coordinated model simulations of precipitating snow. The satellite tracks include the DMSP satellite numbers 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19. A list of starting overpass times per satellite and day is included.
