Short Name:

GPM Ground Validation Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) ICE POP V1

The GPM Ground Validation Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) ICE POP dataset includes precipitation measurements and video images collected by the Precipitation Imaging Package (PIP) during the International Collaborative Experiments for Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (ICE-POP) field campaign in South Korea. The two major objectives of ICE-POP were to study severe winter weather events in regions of complex terrain and improve the short-term forecasting of such events. These data contributed to the Global Precipitation Measurement mission Ground Validation (GPM GV) campaign efforts to improve satellite estimates of orographic winter precipitation. Data values obtained using PIP measurements include particle size distributions, fall velocity distributions, precipitation density estimates, and precipitation rates. The dataset files are available from June 18, 2017 through December 30, 2018 as generic data files (.dat) in ASCII-CSV format with browse imagery and video available in PNG and AVI format.
