GPM Ground Validation UNCA Upper Air Radiosonde IPHEx V1
Entry ID: gpmradioiphx_1

Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation UNCA Upper Air Radiosonde IPHEx dataset was collected from April 29, 2014 through June 12, 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. These radiosonde data files include pressure, geometric height, temperature, relative humidity, dew point temperature, wind direction, and wind speed measurements at various levels of the troposphere. The data are available in ASCII-tsv format files, and browse imagery are available as Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format files.
