Precipitation Processing System (PPS) servers will be down for extended maintenance from Tuesday, September 22nd through Thursday September 24th. During this time the PPS websites, the PMM Publisher API, and the GPM research data server (arthurhou) will be unavailable. The GPM near real-time server (jsimpson) and satellite data collection will not be affected. Click here to learn more.
IMERG Early Run Example January 24th, 2020

Data News

The Precipitation Processing System has begun the transition to GPM Version 5 products. The satellite observations made in April 2017 will be the last observations to be included in Version 4 of the GPM data products, with one exception. Starting with observations made in May 2017, PPS will generate Version 5 GPM data products, again with one exception. The exception in both cases is that the PPS Realtime system will continue to generate the Version 4 Early and Late IMERG data products. Version 4 data products have been removed from the STORM data ordering system (https://storm.pps.eosdis.nasa...
During the initial setup up for V04 IMERG, an error was made in the configuration for running the EARLY version of IMERG. This affected the V04A early data from Feb 5 - March 12, 2017. This error caused the early and the late products to be identical. Given that the LATE product is the more accurate product this might not be an issue for many users. However, users who need a consistent approach in the early data will need to download IMERG early Feb 5-March 12, 2017 again. On April 12, 2017 at about 16:55 UTC Feb 5-Feb 28, 2017 files have been rerun and are available from their usual location...
PPS is announcing the release of GPM IMERG V04 Final products today, Wednesday March 22, 2017. Version 04 IMERG data is available on PPS's arthurhou ftp archive for the dates of March 2014 - July 2015. Processing will continue over the next several weeks until the data has been made available up to the present. This data can be found at: ftp://arthurhou.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov/gpmallversions/V04 Individual data orders, subsets or subscription orders can also be set up through PPS's STORM: https://storm.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov/storm/ Release notes and ATBD documentation for IMERG V04 can be found at...
PPS received replacement GPM Ka/Ku L1B products from JAXA and will reprocess the affected data. If you have already obtained products with orbit #17356 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: GPMCOR_KUR_1703190533_0705_017356_1BS_DUB_04A.h5 GPMCOR_KAR_1703190533_0705_017356_1BS_DAB_04A.h5 ------------------------------------- PPS will reprocess these affected downstream products shortly. 2A.GPM.Ka.V6-20160118.20170319-S053318-E070552.017356.V04A.HDF5 2A.GPM.Ku.V6-20160118.20170319...
On the afternoon of March 16, one of the TDRSS data relay satellites went into safe hold. This has reduced the relay satellites available for downloading the data from the GPM core satellite to the ground station at White Sands, NM. It means that times between download contacts have increased. No data is lost but data latency has been greatly affected for the GPM near-realtime core satellite products: GMI and DPR. We understand that this increase in latency will be the norm for the next couple of days. There are NO issues with the GPM core satellite or its sensors. Also there are NO issues...
