GPM GROUND VALIDATION NCAR CLOUD MICROPHYSICS PARTICLE PROBES MC3E V1
Entry ID: gpmparprbmc3e



Summary
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation NCAR Cloud Microphysics Particle Probes MC3E dataset was obtained from three instruments carried aboard the University of North Dakota (UND) Cessna Citation aircraft. These probes, the 2D-C, Cloud Imaging Probe (CIP) and High Volume Precipitation Spectrometer (HVPS-3), collected particle size distributions and particle images which were processed by NCAR. Data were collected April 22, 2011 through June 2, 2011. A related cloud microphysics dataset, GPM Ground Validation UND Citation Cloud Microphysics MC3E, is also available.
