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 from the profiler and from the GEM model data. The LAP 3000 is a pulsed Doppler radar that operates in clean air, reporting data from the atmosphere 3 kilometres or more above ground level. 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.
