PPS received replacement GPM Ka L1B (20378) and Ka/Ku L1B (20379) products from JAXA and will reprocess the affected data including Level 2 and 3 data. If you have already obtained products with orbit# 20378-20379 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 with empty granules:
With the completion of the TRMM era GPM constellation version 8 level 1 processing, PPS will start to process the TRMM era MHS, SSMIS, AMSR2 and ATMS version 8 level 2 and level 3 GPROF products on Monday October 16, 2017. Similar to the TRMM version 8 level 1 constellation 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 file naming convention:
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# 20566 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 affected downstream L2/L3 products shortly.
PPS will start the TRMM version 8 level 1 processing on Monday October 2, 2017. All products will be produced as GPM version V05. All the TRMM products are in HDF5 format with internal compression (same as the current GPM products), and will be produced using the PPS Toolkit (TKIO) version 3.80.29.
PPS received new GPM Ka/Ku L1B products from JAXA and reprocessed the affected data including Level 2 and 3 daily products from 2017-07-29 00:34:47 -> 2017-07-29 02:07:20.
If you have obtained any of these files from our archive or through a Standing Order, etc., please discard these and use the replacement products.
The following files and corresponding browse products will be replaced
One of the TDRS satellites which GPM uses for downloading data is currently in safehold. This means that all downloads scheduled for that satellite wiil obviously not be able to be met. This will increase the latency of all GPM NRT products.
One missed pass has already occurred and led to increased latency. Several others will occur during the night and into tomorrow.
PPS has completed the production of the GIS-friendly TIF/TFW products created from the IMERG Early dataset. These products include running accumulations at 3hr and 1day.
The Early TIF/TFW GIS-friendly products have been created back to the beginning of the mission: March 2014. They can be found on jsimpson server in the directories:
Documentation for the TIF/TFW products is contained in the document README.GIS.pdf in /NRTPUB/imerg/gis.
Date of Event: 15 June 2017
Start Time of Event: 13:15 UTC
Schedule stop time: 14:15 UTC
GSFC networking personnel will be replacing network equipment that will directly impact GPM MOC, both its connection to PPS AND, more significantly, its connection to White Sands (WSC) which is the download location for GPM data.
Since this replacement will provided needed increase in network throughput capacity, the update is required.
During the outage, PPS SDPS (tnitta) will receive NO GPM DATA.
In an effort to keep users informed, below is the current status of the IMERG V04 products.
