National Snow & Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center


Double Rain Gauge Network, Iowa

This data set includes rainfall data from 25 sites in Iowa, centered on the Iowa City Municipal Airport. The collection sites form an approximately regular grid with spacing of 5 km. At each site there are two tipping bucket rain gauges. Data were collected between June 2002 and November 2003. The network is a collaborative effort between NASA, NOAA, the University of Maryland, and the University of Iowa. The experiment was designed to validate the AMSR-E rainfall measurements. The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) is a mission instrument launched aboard NASA's Aqua Satellite on 4 May 2002. AMSR-E validation studies linked to rainfall experiments are designed to evaluate the accuracy of AMSR-E precipitation data.
