The GPM Ground Validation Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) LPVEx dataset includes reflectivity observations and Doppler velocity measurements, as well as aircraft navigation parameters gathered aboard the University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) aircraft. These data were collected as part of the Light Precipitation Evaluation Experiment (LPVEx) from September 16, 2010 to October 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Finland. The dataset was collected to aid in achieving the overarching goals of LPVEx, to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of precipitation algorithms for current and future satellite platforms and to detect and understand the process of light rainfall formation at high latitudes. Multiple instruments were carried onboard theUWKA including the Cloud Microphysics instruments and the Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) instrument. Data files are in netCDF-3 format.
