January 2016 IMERG has been regenerated and posted. This was necessary
due to an error that omitted the gauge analysis in the Final products.
Also, 3B42/3B43 have been recomputed and posted. Let me know if you have
any further questions.
PPS has removed the January 2016 GPM IMERG and January through June 2016 3B42/3B43 TMPA products from our ftp archive:
The GPM science team discovered that the IMERG final products for Jan 2016 and the Jan-Jun 2016 TMPA 3B42/3B43 products for which we merge the multi-satellite product with gauge analysis over land contained an error. For 2016, the gauge was erroneously not included (input from GPCC), therefore over land, the estimates are purely multi-satellite. Please note that this error doesn't affect estimates over the ocean.
As a result, we are choosing to retract and replace the 2016 January (only) IMERG and 2016 January through June 2016 3B42/3B43TMPA products. The 2016 3B42/3B43 TMPA data is being reprocessed currently and should be available soon.
If you have acquired any of the 2016 IMERG or TMPA products mentioned above either through Standing Orders or other method; please discard these and replace them with the newly regenerated products.
We regret any inconvenience or problem that this may have caused. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
