On 1 December 2017 sometime between 07:00 UTC and 12:00 UTC, PPS will begin installing V05B algorithms for the near realtime (NRT) IMERG dataset. If no problems arise, the installation should take approximately 4 hours. During this period IMERG products will be unavailable.
While this is the first V05 IMERG available from NRT, we are making the data product version V05B so that both the early and the late product will be consistent with the version of the final product which is at V05B.
To avoid unnecessary emails, PPS will not send out an email when the V05 installation is complete. Users will know installation is complete when they see 1 December 2017 V05B data products available.
When the installation is complete PPS will ensure that all products from 1 December 2017, 00UTC are at V05B. IMERG products before that date/time will remain at V04A.
The current schedule calls for the retrospective processing of all NRT data, both early and late, to begin in January of 2018.
