Field Campaigns

Field research campaigns are essential for observing and measuring actual Earth system phenomena and validating computer models that simulate Earth systems. Ultimately, field data help improve the nation's ability to predict climate change and its impacts.  The GHRC ingests, processes, archives and distributes airborne and ground based observations from hurricane science field campaigns and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Ground Validation experiments.

The NASA Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPM) Ground Validation (GV) program, as a member of the broader NASA Precipitation Measurement Mission, is providing ground and airborne precipitation datasets supporting physical validation of satellite-based precipitation retrieval algorithms.  The GHRC is working with the GPM-GV Science Manager to support these GPM GV physical process studies, which rely on targeted field observations lasting roughly six weeks for intensive observation periods.

This site provides Field Campaign Coordination portals and resources for the GPM-GV team: 

Field Campaign Coordination portals are generally restricted to investigators participating in the campaign.
