GPM GROUND VALIDATION FLIGHT SUMMARIES AND FLIGHT TRACKS IMAGERY MC3E V1

The GPM Ground Validation Flight Summaries and Flight Tracks Imagery MC3E dataset for the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E) provides processed summaries from the University of North Dakota including sonde maps, a radar animation, parameter versus time charts, radar track graphs, and a summary including aircraft and instrument operational times. The MC3E took place in central Oklahoma during the April-June 2011 period. The experiment was a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Ground Validation (GV) program. The Flight Tracks imagery includes one animation for May 11, 2011 and the KICT 5 minute snapshots from the Real Time Mission Monitor (RTMM). This dataset is distributed with the MC3E ER-2 Navigation and the Citation Navigation datasets.
