Abstract: The Pluvio rain gauge dataset contains both one minute measurement and a cumulative record of the accumulation and intensity for liquid, solid, and mixed precipitation collected during the GPM Cold-season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx). GCPEx took place in Ontario, Canada during the Winter season December 2011 - February 2012 where data was collected at five sites: CARE, Huronia, Steamshow, Skydive and Morton. The new generation Pluvio was designed by OTT Hydromet in Kempten, Germany.
