A long precipitation data set like the new GPM IMERG V06 product is valuable for many applications and for decision-making. Accurate and reliable precipitation records are not only crucial to understanding trends and variability but also for water management resources and food security, ecological management, and weather, climate and hydrological forecasting. Here we present a few highlights showcasing how GPM IMERG is helping a variety of end users make decisions that will benefit society for years to come.
NASA’s Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) have collected rain and snowfall from space for nearly 20 years, and for the first time in 2019, scientists can access PMM’s entire record as one data set.
PPS will resume to process NOAA-19 MHS L1C and GPROF products for the granules starting from 09/20/2019 10:22:10 UTC.
There was an issue with the satellite drifting which caused issues with the pre-processing. NOAA/NESDIS updated the processing coefficient and made the NOAA-19 MHS channel 2 L1B data back to normal.
PPS will halt the NOAA-19 L1C and GPROF products for the time being due to problems with the input received.
Indications are that the NOAA-19 MHS channel 2 has failed. The input data (MSPPS_ORB) used for producing the NOAA-19 MHS L1C product is flagging all the Ta as missing, and as a result the L1C and GPROF products for NOAA-19 have ceased.
We will inform you when and if we have any new details or announcements.
Thank you for your attention and patience during this time.
