GRIP GLOBAL HAWK NAVIGATION AND HOUSEKEEPING DATA V1

The GRIP Global Hawk Navigation and Housekeeping data was collected from August 15, 2010 to September 24, 2010 during the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) field campaign. The major goal was to better understand how tropical storms form and develop into major hurricanes. The Global Hawk is an unmanned Airborne System configured with in situ and remote sensing instruments, including the Lightning Imaging Package (LIP), High Altitude Wind and Rain Profiler (HIWRAP), and High Altitude MMIC Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR). Data was collected for 7 dates and is in the IWGADTS IWG1 format. The dataset also includes XML files containing metadata documenting the parameters and their format collected during each day's flight.
