The GPM Ground Validation (GV) Environment Canada (EC) Visibility Sensor FD12P C3VP dataset consists of visibility and precipitation data collected at the Environment Canada Canadian Climate station at the Centre for Atmospheric Research Experiments (CARE) site during the Canadian CloudSat/CALIPSO Validation Project (C3VP) field campaign. The campaign took place in southern Canada in support of multiple science missions, including the NASA GPM mission, in order to improve the modeling and remote sensing of winter precipitation. The GPM GV Visibility Sensor FD12P C3VP data are available from October 4, 2006 through March 31, 2007 in a Microsoft Excel comma-separated variable spreadsheet.
