As of January 19, 2021, FTP access to the GPM research / production data server "arthurhou" is no longer available, and you must use either FTPS or HTTPS to access GPM research data. Click here to learn more.
IMERG Early Run Example January 24th, 2020

Data News

Effective about 11 UTC 19 August 2020, the GPM Mission Operations Center (MOC) stopped receiving data from the GPM Core Observatory satellite. The Flight Operations Team (FOT) is currently assessing the situation. They are working to determine what configuration needs to be accomplished to reestablish data from the satellite. This will likely take a while and there will be no GPM Core Observatory data products available until communications has been successfully reestablished and tested. The IMERG product will continue to be produced but no GMI data will be included in either the early or late...
PPS has created a new PPS/GPM Science Algorithm Toolkit (TKIO) package which includes all the latest production formats. Those wishing to access new production data products listed below using C and Fortran interfaces may wish to download this TKIO package. Those using development TKIO versions that include the newer products do not need this public distribution, it is optional. This 3.97 TKIO includes all production formats including the recent additions of the V06X radar products and 3B42/3 in HDF5. The direct link is ftp://gpmweb2.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov/pub/PPStoolkit/GPM/tkio-3.97/tkio-3.97...
At 11:00 UTC on 18 June 2020, FTP access to jsimpson will no longer be possible. The stoppage was originally scheduled for 1 June 2020 but due to the impacts of the CoVid19 pandemic, the end of FTP was delayed. Effective 11:00 UTC 18 June 2020, both jsimpson.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov and jsimpsonftps.eosdis.nasa.gov will provide FTPS access to GPM NRT data. FTPS will be the main, 24hr/7day retrieval protocol for getting GPM NRT data from PPS. Remember PPS implements explicit FTPS, FTPS retrieval will require your system administrators to open ports 64000-65000. You can find examples of using curl and wget for FTPS access to data on jsimpson in /NRTPUB/documentation/FTP-FTPS-Transition.pdf
The IMERG Algorithm Development Team is currently developing the next version of IMERG, V07. To help us prioritize our efforts, we have created a survey for users to identify aspects of IMERG that they consider important. Your responses will help us decide how we should focus our development effort for V07 and beyond. We deeply appreciate your responses. The survey is located at https://forms.gle/hgSMBXx7a2ScWpRSA This survey should take no more than 5 to 10 minutes. It is open through Monday, June 15.
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. For Level-1 and Level-2 products, users should check the dataQuality...
