EOSDIS Data News: September 8, 2017
NASA's Global Hydrology Resource Center Distributed Active Archive Center (GHRC DAAC) has published the Global Precipitation Measurement Ground Validation (GPM-GV) NCAR Particle Probes Olympic Mountain Experiment (OLYMPEX) dataset. The dataset consists ice water content, particle concentration normalized by bin width, and total particle concentration collected from 3 instruments flown on the University of North Dakota Citation aircraft during 20 missions in November and December 2015. The instruments included the PMS Two-Dimensional Cloud probe (2D-C), the SPEC Two-dimensional Stereo probe (2D-S), and two SPEC High Volume Precipitation Spectrometer 3 (HVPS-3), all two-dimensional optical array probes which record images of variously-sized particles that travel through the sampling area. All data were collected during the OLYMPEX field campaign held at Washington's Olympic Peninsula.
NSIDC DAAC has published data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) F13 sensor to the dataset Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Calibrated Enhanced-Resolution Passive Microwave Daily EASE-Grid 2.0 Brightness Temperature ESDR as Version 1.2. Also included in this minor version is a correction to the handling of QC flags to retain more data, eliminating only the flagged data in a given channel and taking care not to eliminate data in other channels. This dataset is part of the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program.
