GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics GCPEXEntry ID: gpmcmgcpex
Abstract: The University of North Dakota (UND) Cessna Citation aircraft, an in-situ platform for the GCPEX campaign, carried a suite of instruments for measurements of cloud microphysics, state of the atmosphere parameters, aerosols, three-dimensional winds and turbulence. The data are stored as a separate file for each flight, with a primary (*.gcpex) file containing both direct and derived parameters. Raw data files for each cloud instrument are also archived for investigators who wish to use their own processing software. Citation flight navigation data is also included in this dataset.
