SBU Pluvio Precipitation Gauge IMPACTS V1

The SBU Pluvio Precipitation Gauge IMPACTS dataset consists of precipitation intensity and precipitation accumulation collected using the OTT Pluvio2 weighing rain gauge during the Investigation of Microphysics and Precipitation for Atlantic Coast-Threatening Snowstorms (IMPACTS) campaign. Funded by NASA’s Earth Venture program, IMPACTS is the first comprehensive study of East Coast snowstorms in 30 years. The campaign aimed to (1) Provide observations critical to understanding the mechanisms of snowband formation, organization, and evolution; (2) Examine how the microphysical characteristics and likely growth mechanisms of snow particles vary across snowbands; and (3) Improve snowfall remote sensing interpretation and modeling to significantly advance prediction capabilities. Data files in this dataset are available in ASCII-csv format from January 7, 2020 through February 27, 2020.
