GPM GROUND VALIDATION NEXRAD LEVEL II KMPX IFLOODS V1
Entry ID: gpmkmpx2ifld_1


Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation NEXRAD Level II KMPX IFloodS dataset was collected during March 29, 2013 to June 18, 2013 for the GPM Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS). The goals of the campaign were to collect detailed measurements of precipitation at the Earth's surface using ground instruments and advanced weather radars and, simultaneously, collect data from satellites passing overhead. The Next Generation Weather Radar system (NEXRAD) is comprised of 160 Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) sites throughout the United States and select overseas locations. The GPM Ground Validation NEXRAD IFloodS data files are available as Level 2 binary files, and provide radar reflectivity.
