The GPM Ground Validation ER-2 X-band Radar (EXRAD) IPHEx dataset was collected in support of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) field campaign in North Carolina, with an intense study period occurring from May 1, 2014 through June 15, 2014. The goal of IPHEx was to evaluate the accuracy of satellite precipitation measurements and use the collected data for hydrology models in the region. EXRAD is a single-frequency X-band Doppler radar that measures reflectivity and Doppler velocity. The science instruments, including the EXRAD, onboard the NASA ER-2 aircraft acted as a proxy for GPM satellite instruments. This dataset is available in netCDF-3 file format.
