GPM GROUND VALIDATION MICRO RAIN RADAR (MRR) NASA ACHIEVE IPHEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation Micro Rain Radar (MRR) NASA ACHIEVE IPHEx dataset was gathered during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) in North Carolina during an intense study period from May 1 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. The dataset includes averaged data from the Micro Rain Radar (MRR), which is part of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Aerosol-Cloud-Humidity Interactions Exploring and Validating Enterprise (ACHIEVE) ground-based mobile laboratory. The MRR is a METEK 24 GHz (K-band) vertically oriented Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FM–CW) radar that measures Doppler spectra and derives rain rate, radar reflectivity, fall velocity, liquid water content, and other standard measurements. The dataset files are available from May 6 through June 15, 2014 in ASCII format.
