GPM GROUND VALIDATION SPECIAL SENSOR MICROWAVE IMAGER/SOUNDER (SSMI/S) LPVEX V1

The GPM Ground Validation Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder (SSMI/S) LPVEx dataset contains brightness temperature data processed from the NOAA CLASS QC temperature data records for the Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LVPEX), part of the Global Precipitation Measurement project. The mission was to detect and characterize light rain and evaluate their estimates of rainfall intensity in high latitude, shallow freezing level environments.Only data with swaths within the area of interest are included. The temporal range of the data includes the LPVEx campaign period (September 1, 2010) and extends through the end of March 31, 2011.
