GPM GROUND VALIDATION DC-8 CAMERA NADIR GCPEX V1
Entry ID: gpmncamdc8gcpex

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation DC-8 Camera Nadir GCPEx dataset contains geo-located visible-wavelength imagery of the ground obtained from the nadir camera aboard the NASA DC-8 in Canada during the Cold-season Precipitation experiment. The data is available only for February 20, 2012, a clear-air flight day. DC-8 Camera nadir data may be useful for determining snow cover and lake ice cover for emissivity studies in conjunction with CoSMIR data, for example. The dataset also includes, for convenience and reproducibility, aircraft navigation information and ground temperatures to aid in emissivity retrievals.
