Following a reset of the DPR to Standby Mode that occurred on April 22, 2020, the DPR Ka radar data acquisition has been restored. PPS is releasing the DPR and downstream data for distribution from April 22, 2020 - April 30, 2020. There are continuing short data outages for the radar that are being investigated and corrective measures are scheduled to be applied on May 14, 2020. PPS will be releasing May 2020 data in stages with an expected return to normal data availability soon after the corrective measures are applied.
Effective 1 June 2020, ftp will no longer be available on the NRT server
Effective that date the primary access method will be ftps. A number of different ways to use ftps are available:
1. Python 3 ftplib supports ftps
2. In Linux lftp is a ftps client
3. curl works with ftps
4. wget works with ftps
5. Packages are available for Windows
The Precipitation Processing System (PPS) has begun the TRMM and GPM Goddard Convective-Stratiform Heating (CSH) V06A level 2 and level 3 data reprocessing on, Monday October 21, 2019. This reprocessing will cover the whole life for TRMM and the period from the launch to current for GPM.
The release notes (CHS V06) explaining the key changes from V05A and improvements implemented in the current V06A product will be available later this week and will be posted on the following PPS public web pages as soon as it's provided:
IMERG is now available back to June 2000 of the TRMM era. Both the 'early'
and the 'late' products have been retrospectively processed. These products are available in the same location on the jsimpson.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov FTP server as the current GPM IMERG products: /NRTPUB/imerg/early/YYYYMM and /NRTPUB/imerg/late/YYYYMM.
We are in the process of retrospectively processing the GIS-friendly versions and accumulations of these IMERG products. This is likely to be completed by the end of September 2019.
PPS is releasing version 3.80.44 build of the PPS TKIO toolkit using the 14.0.1 Fortran compiler for GPM. As detailed in our earlier announcement that you received on Thursday, June 28th, 2018, titled;
"PPS is Reprocessing TRMM PR Data as TRMM GPM, Version 06A HDF5 products in Early July 2018"
The TRMM Version 7 Precipitation Radar (PR) products will be superseded by new GPM era products with a reprocessing that will generate TRMM retrievals from the beginning of the TRMM mission to the end of data collection using a single frequency retrieval algorithm similar to that used for GPM Ku. This reprocessing will begin in early July, 2018.
On Sunday June 17, 2018 PPS System Programmers and staff will be performing an important scheduled GPM archive server upgrade.
Due to this upgrade process, most PPS systems and services will be unavailable for most or all of that day starting at 9:00 AM (EDT) and lasting until late afternoon or longer depending upon the upgrade circumstances.
PPS received replacement GPM Ka/Ku L1B products from JAXA and will reprocess the affected data including Level 2 and 3 data.
If you have already obtained products with orbit#23969 from our archive or through a standing order, etc., please discard and use the replacement products.
PPS has replaced the following GPM Ka/Ku L1B data:
PPS will reprocess the following L2-3 downstream products:
The STORM Swath-Based Analysis Tool (https://storm.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov/storm/Analysis.jsp) is a better way to explore and order targeted Level 2 data. Select one or more instruments from a list going back to the beginning of the TRMM mission, provide a date range, and input a geographic region of interest. Once you hit "Get Granules for Chart," a graph will appear and data points will begin to display.
With the evaluation and approval, PPS will start to process the TRMM era AMSRE, AMSUB and SSMI level 2 and level 3 GPROF products on Wednesday, February 7, 2018. Similar to the early released TRMM era MHS, SSMIS, AMSR2 and ATMS level 2 and level 3 products, all level 2 and level 3 GPROF products will be produced as GPM version V05, all products are in HDF5 format, all product names will use the GPM naming convention and the produced data will appear both in STORM:
