GPM GROUND VALIDATION NASA S-BAND DUAL POLARIMETRIC (NPOL) DOPPLER RADAR IFLOODS V2Entry ID: gpmnpolifld2_2
Abstract: The GPM Ground Validation NASA S-Band Dual Polarimetric (NPOL) Doppler Radar IFloods V2 data set was collected from April 30, 2013 to June 16, 2013 near Traer, Iowa as a part of the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPM) Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) campaign measuring reflecticity and doppler velocity. The goals of the campaign were to collect detailed measurements of precipitation at the ... Earth's surface using ground instruments and advanced weather radars and, simultaneously, collect data from satellites passing overhead. The NASA NPOL radar, developed by a research team from Wallops Flight Facility, is a fully transportable and self-contained S-band (10 cm), scanning dual-polarimetric, Doppler research radar that collected and operated nearly continuously during the IFloodS field campaign. The GPM Ground Validation NASA S-Band Dual Polarimetric (NPOL) Doppler Radar IFloodS V2 data are available in Universal [Radar] Format (UF).
