The Campaign

The International Collaborative Experiment for PyeongChang Olympic and Paralympics (ICE-POP) was a venture led by the Korean Meteorological Association (KMA) with the help of NASA. ICE-POP had 1 deployment, which began in November 2017 and concluded in March 2018. Its main focus was to study frozen and mixed phase precipitation over complex terrain in South Korea and provide ground validation of snowfall estimates for the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) satellite. The primary instruments used for data collection were ground-based sensors, such as the Dual Frequency Dual Polarimetric Doppler Radar (D3R), Micro Rain Radars (MRR), and a host of rain gauge and imaging disdrometer networks. ICE-POP also provided forecasting and nowcasting support during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
