Recent 3B41RT and 3B42RT Files Reprocessed

NOAA has reprocessed the global IR data for 10 UTC 26 April
through 14 UTC 27 April due to dropped images, and all 3B41RT and
3B42RT files for this time period have been reprocessed by PPS and are
now available:

   3B41RT.2015042610.7.bin.gz through 3B41RT.2015042714.7.bin.gz
   3B42RT.2015042612.7.bin.gz through 3B42RT.2015042715.7.bin.gz

Such partial dropouts in the IR data result in somewhat lower quality for IMERG Early and Late Runs, but are not cause for reprocessing. 

IMERG Data Temporarily Suspended

Due to an outage of the input 4-km IR data, the IMERG early and late runs began failing to execute on the April 14. Because of the loss of NOAA hourly IR data, PPS has had to shut off the production of NRT early and late IMERG production.  We have received no valid IR data since April 14 17:00 UTC and no IR data at all since April 15 09:00 UTC.

The software is able to deal with bad data by skipping it but it is currently not configured to handle the situation of not receiving any data at all.

3rd NOAA User Workshop on GPM: Proving Ground

The 3rd NOAA User Workshop on the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission: Proving Ground was held from April 2 - 4th  at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC), University of Maryland in College Park, MD. The 3-day workshop was focused on identifying the use of GPM data in research and operational algorithm development, characterizing NOAA GPM Proving Ground activities and participants, and identifying training needs for use of GPM data in NOAA operations.
