EOSDIS Data News - 06/16/2017
NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) has published the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation Autonomous Parsivel Unit (APU) Olympic Mountain Experiment (OLYMPEX) dataset. The dataset consists of data collected by 16 APUs. The APU is an optical laser-disdrometer based on single particle extinction that measures particle size and fall velocity. It consists of the Parsivel2 developed by OTT in Germany and supporting hardware developed by University of Alabama. This APU dataset provides precipitation data including precipitation amount, precipitation rate, reflectivity in Rayleigh regime, liquid water content, drop diameter, and drop concentration. Data were collected were during the OLYMPEX field campaign held at Washington's Olympic Peninsula during the intense observation period of January 1, 2015 through January 1 2016.
- Provisional Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 Science Data Record Version 1.1 datasets from the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) Project (ingest will begin after the University of Michigan Data Provider completes reprocessing).
- The Group for High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature (GHRSST) Data Specification (GDS) 2 Level 3U dataset for Global Subskin Sea Surface Temperature from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR-2) instrument on the Global Change Observation Mission-Water "SHIZUKU" (GCOM-W) satellite (Remote Sensing Systems is the Data Provider for this dataset).
