Summary
Abstract: The Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) experiment was a NASA Earth science field experiment conducted 5 August – 30 September 2010 to better understand how tropical storms form and develop into major hurricanes. NASA used the DC-8 aircraft and the Global Hawk Unmanned Airborne System (UAS) configured with a suite of in situ and remote sensing instruments that were used to observe and characterize the lifecycle of hurricanes. This campaign also capitalized on a number of ground networks and space-based assets, in addition to the instruments deployed on aircraft from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (DC-8) and NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, California (Global Hawk).

The GRIP Global Hawk Navigation data was collected during the period Aug 15, 2010 to September 24, 2010 during the GRIP field campaign. The Global Hawk is an unmanned Airborne System configured with in situ and remote sensing instruments, including the Lightning Imaging Package(LIP), High Altitude Wind and Rain Profiler (HIWRAP) , and High Altitude MMIC Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR). Data was collected for 7 dates and is in the IWGADTS IWG1 format. The dataset also includes XML files containing metadata documenting the parameters and their format collected during each day's flight.
