Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-2) GPROF monthly surface precipitation retrievals using (left) regular and (right) climate-based a priori databases, for May 2016.

New GPM Goddard Profiling Algorithm (GPROF) Version 04 Data announced

 

The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC), in collaboration with the Precipitation Processing System, is currently providing access to a large suite of new Version 04 data from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission. These data are output from the Goddard Passive Microwave Profiling Algorithms associated with the GPM mission (GPROF).

 

To generalize, new passive microwave retrievals are available from the GPM Core Observatory Microwave Imager (GMI), as well as from partner radiometers/satellites:

Radiometer

Satellite

Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I            

F16-F19, Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) 

Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-2)

GCOM-W1

Microwave Humidity Sounder (MHS)

METOP-A, METOP-B, NOAA18, NOAA19

Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS)

Suomi National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (NPP)

TRMM Microwave Imager (TMI)

Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)

 

A special version of GPROF datasets retrieved using climatology-based a priori databases are also available (designated with “CLIM” in the dataset names).

All datasets are available as 90-minute orbital (Level 2), and gridded (Level 3) Daily and Monthly files.

 

Information on datasets and data access methods are available at:
