Positional Algorithm Issue with GMI 85GHz


One of our scientists noticed that the 85GHz H and V channels have missing values in ascending passes just south of 20 deg S. In that region it appears consistently since 10:45UTC which is the earliest we checked. The other channels seem fine.

The counts for the 85GHz channels appear to be fine as is the geolocation. However both the 1B and 1 Base files have the missing values in that area. We are checking what is causing the algorithm to list the values as missing.

Please keep this in mind when using those channels.
