HS3 logo

GHRC has published its first HS3 dataset, Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) Global Hawk High Altitude MMIC Sounding Radiometer (HAMSR). This dataset contains measurements gathered by the HAMSR instrument during the HS3 campaigns during the hurricane seasons of 2012 and 2013 in the Atlantic Ocean basin region. HAMSR has 25 spectral channels in 3 bands (50-60 Ghz, 118 Ghz, 183 Ghz), and it provides measurements that can be used to infer the 3D distribution of temperature, water vapor, and cloud liquid water in the atmosphere, even in the presence of clouds. HAMSR is mounted in payload zone 3 near the nose of the Global Hawk NASA aircraft. Data is available in netCDF/CF format.
