Short Name:

GPM Ground Validation C-band Vantaa (VAN) Radar LPVEx V1

The GPM Ground Validation C-Band Radar datasets include radar reflectivity data from the Vantaa (VAN) dual-polarimetric C-Band Doppler radar in Finland during the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) field campaign. This radar, along with four others, provided reflectivity measurements for light precipitation systems during LPVEx. This field campaign took place around the Gulf of Finland, aiming to provide additional high-latitude, light rainfall measurements for the improvement of GPM satellite precipitation algorithms. The Vantaa C-Band Radar data files are available in RAW and UF format, with browse imagery in PNG format from September 16, 2010 through January 31, 2011.
