The Campaign

The Iowa Flood Studies (IFloodS) was a part of NASA's Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Ground Validation (GV) aimed at providing satellite-validation of GPM satellite rainfall data. NASA along with the Iowa Flood Center (IFC) conducted IFloodS in April-June 2013 across portions of northeastern Iowa. Numerous ground radars, stream flow gauges and rain gauges were utilized to capture precipitation characteristics such as rainfall rate and drop size distribution (DSD). Rainfall measurements were taken in conjunction with satellite overpasses to help assess the accuracy of satellite rainfall retrieval when used for flood forecasting.
