EOSDIS Data News - 01/19/2018
NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) published three Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation NEXRAD OLYMPEX datasets. These NEXt Generation Weather RADar system (NEXRAD) Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) datasets contain data from selected NEXRAD instruments in operation during the OLYMPEX field campaign. NEXRAD is a network of 160 stationary S-Band radars dispersed throughout the United States and select locations abroad. Datasets gathered from three of the NEXRAD stations contain browse images of base reflectivity observations in the Portable Network Graphic (PNG) format extending from 22 September 2015 through 01 May 2016 during the OLYMPEX field campaign. Base radar reflectivity is the measure of transmitted power returned to the radar after intercepting a target, such as rain droplets.

NSIDC DAAC has published a correction to the dataset IceBridge Ku-Band Radar L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles, Version 2 for data collected on 19 May 2016. The error affected the calculation of the elevations of the internal layers, as well as the layer thicknesses for that date only. The data for 19 May 2016 have been reprocessed and replaced with the corrected data.
