EOSDIS Data News - 09/07/2018

NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) published two datasets from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) field campaign, that took place from April 23, 2013 through June 30, 2013. The IFloodS field campaign was a ground measurement campaign that took place in eastern Iowa. 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 to simultaneously collect data from satellites passing overhead.
  • GPM Ground Validation Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Near-Real Time Rain Rates IFloodS was produced using the Probability Matching Method with rain gauge, Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F15 Special Sensor Microwave - Imager (SSM/I), and DMSP F16 Special Sensor Microwave - Imager/Sounder (SSMIS) data. This data product includes rain rate estimates and files are available in netCDF-4 and binary formats, as well as corresponding browse imagery in JPG format.
  • GPM Ground Validation Goddard Profiling Algorithm (GPROF) 2014 IFloodS dataset consists of precipitation data derived from microwave radiometers and sounders located on multiple satellites, including the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F16-18, the Global Change Observation Mission – Water "Shizuku" (GCOM-W1), the European Space Agency's (ESA’s) Meteorological Operational satellite programme (MetOp) series, and NOAA's Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) series. These data were specially produced by the Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) for IFloodS, using consistent processing and calibration. The GPROF 2014 data files are available from March 31 to July 2, 2013 in HDF-5 format.
NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) DAAC released three datasets, including:
