GPM GROUND VALIDATION ENVIRONMENT CANADA (EC) WIND PROFILER GCPEX V1
Entry ID: gpmwpecgcpex_1


Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation Environment Canada (EC) Wind Profiler GCPEx dataset provides post-processed consensus winds and daily quick look plots from the Vaisala Wind Profiler LAP 3000. The daily plots depict wind information, such as wind speed and wind direction, from the profiler and from the Global Environmental Multiscale (GEM) model data. The LAP 3000 is a pulsed Doppler radar that operates in clean air. The Wind profiler data was collected January 15, 2012 through March 1, 2012 for the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) at the CARE site in Ontario, Canada. This dataset was collected to aid in the achievement of the over arching goal of GCPEx which is to characterize the ability of multi-frequency active and passive microwave sensors to detect and estimate falling snow.
