warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE Sep 25, 2016    Replacing 2016 Final IMERG and TMPA    

The 2016 Final IMERG (GPM_3IMERGHH.03 and GPM_3IMERGM.03) and Research Quality TMPA (TRMM_3B42.7 and TRMM_3B43.7) products are being retracted and replaced by the Precipitation Processing System. 

For 2016, the rain gauge data were erroneously not included, resulting in land estimates purely multi-satellite.  Note that this error does not affect estimates over ocean. Retro-processing to replace these data will commence on September 26, 2016.

The respective GES DISC derived Daily products (GPM_3IMERGDF.03 and TRMM_3B42_Daily.7)  will also be replaced. 

Data Information

 Current data hosted at HDISC include outputs from a series of land surface models in the Land Data Assimilation System (LDAS). Users can access the hourly 1/8th degree product for North America (NLDAS) or the 3-hourly 0.25 and 1.0 degree products globally (GLDAS). The files are in GRIB format. The static parameter data used by the LDAS models are available from the GSFC Land Information System.
