GPROF and IMERG Production Continued, GPM Radar Still Unavailable

The PPS is now receiving AMSR2 data and JMA forecasts from JAXA, which means that GPROF and IMERG Early and Late products will continue being produced. The GPM radar and combined products are still unavailable due to the JAXA system issues. 

The PPS has also worked with partners at CSU to develop a new method of processing GPROF that will allow continued production even if no JMA forecast files are received, in the event of a future outage.
