GPM Microwave Imager (GMI) Level 1B (L1B) Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD)
This document describes the GMI Level 1B algorithm developed by PPS. It consists of physical bases and mathematical equations for GMI calibration, as well as after-launch activities. The document also presents high-level software design. Parts of this document are from the Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) GMI Calibration ATBD and the BATC Calibration Data Book as contributed by the BATC GMI manufactory contract. The GMI L1B geolocation algorithm is described in a separate Geolocation Toolkit ATBD.
