Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation Dual-frequency Dual-polarized Doppler Radar (D3R) IPHEx dataset was collected from May 3, 2014 to June 1, 2014 during the GPM Ground Validation Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx) held in North Carolina. The goal of IPHEx was to characterize warm season orographic precipitation regimes and the relationship between precipitation regimes and hydrologic processes in regions of complex terrain. The D3R is a fully polarimetric, scanning weather radar system operating at the nominal frequencies of 13.91 GHz and 35.56 GHz covering a maximum range of 30 km. The GPM Ground Validation D3R IPHEx dataset is available in netCDF format.
