EOSDIS Data News - 10/27/2017
NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) published the GPM Ground Validation Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) OLYMPEX dataset. AMPR is an airborne passive microwave radiometer from which cloud, precipitation, water vapor, wind speed and wind direction can be obtained using advanced algorithms with the 10.7, 19.35, 37.1, and 85.5 GHz microwave frequency brightness temperatures. The AMPR brightness temperatures were collected during the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX) field campaign. AMPR data at the Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC include netCDF format data files of brightness temperature and PNG browse files of Quality Control Flags and Brightness Temperatures.
