The GPM Ground Validation NASA W-band Airborne Cloud Radar (WACR) C3VP dataset consists of calibrated co- and cross-polarized radar reflectivity at 94 GHz 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 WACR is used for cloud sensing and microphysics. During C3VP, the WACR was deployed as a surface-based, zenith-pointing instrument in the Cloud Radar Trailer at the Centre for Atmospheric Research Experiments (CARE) facility in Ontario, Canada. The data include radar reflectivities in zenith-pointing orientation at the CARE facility. The dataset files are available in netCDF format from October 30, 2006 through March 2, 2007.
