GPM GROUND VALIDATION COMPOSITE SATELLITE OVERPASSES MC3E V1Entry ID: gpmsomc3e
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation Composite Satellite Overpasses MC3E dataset provides satellite overpasses from the AQUA satellite during the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E) which took place in central Oklahoma April 22 - June 5, 2011. The radiometric data was matched up with other datasets necessary to carry out land surface emissivity studies. These other datasets include ... the NEXRAD NMQ radar mosaic for knowledge of rain structure and intensity at the time of the overpass, as well as the previous accumulated precip prior to the satellite overpass time), the NOAA IMS snow mapping system (to identify surface snow or ice cover), and the NASA/GMAO MERRA land and atmospheric reanalysis (for background land and atmospheric state needed for microwave radiative transfer calculations). The identified AQUA satellite overpasses included passed within 700-km of the central field site.
