The GPM Cold Season Precipitation Experiment (GCPEx) focused on ground validation observations to enhance GPM snowfall retrieval algorithm performance by characterizing the ability of active and passive microwave sensors to detect and estimate falling snow. GCPEx had a single deployment over southern Ontario, Canada, and the northern US, during the boreal winter of 2012. Airborne in situ microphysics data and multifrequency active and passive microwave observations were supplemented by ground sites that included multiple frequencies of radars, radiometers, disdrometers, and photographic and video imagery. GCPEx was a NASA PMM/GPM GV field campaign.
