OceanRAIN-1.0 data distribution for 8 ships from June 2010 to April 2017

The Ocean Rain And Ice-phase precipitation measurement Network (OceanRAIN) is an ODM470 optical disdrometer based in-situ shipboard precipitation, evaporation and freshwater flux data set over the global oceans. OceanRAIN provides a comprehensive statistical basis of rain, snow and mixed-phase precipitation intensities and microphysics for all climatic oceanic regions through particle size distributions. Between June 2010 and April 2017 OceanRAIN-1.0 contains more than 6.83 million minutes of measurements from 8 research vessels and provides high-quality validation and calibration data for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite era.

The products are available as 1-min resolution along-track time series data of 75 parameters in ASCII and NetCDF formats. For detailed information, see the data set section.

The first version - OceanRAIN-1.0- is available for download via the World Data Center for Climate (WDCC) at DKRZ and the Integrated Climate Data Center (ICDC):
