GHRC has published two datasets from Light Precipitation Evaluation Experiment (LPVEx):  GPM Ground Validation Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR) LPVEx and GPM Ground Validation Wyoming King Air Cloud Microphysics LPVEx.  Both of these datasets’ instruments gathered data while aboard the University of Wyoming King Air (UWKA) during September and October 2010 in the Gulf of Finland.  The Wyoming Cloud Radar, a Doppler radar, has reflectivity observations and doppler velocity measurements.  The Cloud Microphysics dataset has measurements for static pressure, dew point temperature, relative humidity, mixing ratio, liquid water content and droplet concentration from multiple instruments.  Both datasets contain aircraft navigational parameters.
