11 11EGU 2014-Vienna Austria, April 30, 2014 Status of GPM Data Products-1 Geolocation –Location on the ground reported within requirements –On April 19 Attitude Control System engineers reported an alignment error between start tracker and spacecraft leading to ~0.3 degree peak to peak attitude error (mostly roll) This does have an impact on incidence angles which affect Tb calculation New table scheduled to be uploaded April 25 Data products will be adjusted as part of reprocessing for the PMM data release GMI L1 products –Reasonably well calibrated (meets requirements specifications) –Small calibration changes in April that included in version V01D –Close to TMI calibration –Some RFI issues in 10 GHz and 18GHz channels (approach to flag and mitigate currently being examined.) GPROF retrieval products –Saw more specific information in Dr. Kummerow’s presentation –Currently using initial non GPM a priori databases –New database approach for over land retrievals working reasonably well –Currently producing GPROF retrieval for partner imagers and testing sounders –Early state: some areas during really well and others not –Will need about one year of stable GMI L1C and GMI-DPR Level 2B data to establish physically based a priori databases for the GPROF retrievals for the radiometers

12 12EGU 2014-Vienna Austria, April 30, 2014 Status of GPM Data Products -2 Ku/Ka L1B –radar powers –Have completed several external and internal calibrations –Have verified phase shifter commands –Reasonably well calibrated for this stage of the mission –Providing acceptable input for the radar L2 algorithms Ku/Ka/DPR-retrievals –L2 are providing reasonable retrievals again at the early stage where better in some areas than in others –Matching of Ku/Ka pixels working –Some issues are being worked by JAXA engineers and DPR algorithm team Combined GMI-DPR –Very early stage of development –Working on dealing with data input issues –Currently still in the experimental stage IMERG (merged radiometer product) –Not being currently produced –Need stable GPROF retrievals for sounders as well as imagers –Currently in internal testing –Usually lags 3 to 4 months after stable L2 GPROF retrievals.

14 14EGU 2014-Vienna Austria, April 30, 2014 GPM Special Products Daily gridded text products (like TRMM 3G68) –0.1 deg x 0.1 degree –Contains: GMI GPROF surface precipitation Ku near-surface precipitation Ka near-surface precipitation DPR match swath near-surface precipitation GMI-DPR Combined surface precipition –ASCII with line terminator being LF character GIS compatible files for IMERG –TIFF (precipitation) with world files for metadata –Precipitation in TIFF is scaled integer –Half-hourly, 1day, 3 day and 7 day accumulations

15 15EGU 2014-Vienna Austria, April 30, 2014 Accessing GPM Data Must register an . –registration.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov –Receive an and click to confirm –Can specify interest in either standard science, NRT or both Can do ftp to the archive using your registered as user name and password Can use a query/order web interface –storm-pps.gsfc.nasa.gov or storm-pps.pps.eosdis.nasa.gov –Can query, place orders for specific products, or establish standing orders which will be fulfilled as products are generated –Can subset swath products and get only the subsets specified Geographically Parameter (e.g. just include geolocation and surface precipitation) Or both together Currently limited as to the number orderable to keep within scope –Can establish standing orders for subsets –Can see browse images of the orbit to help in ordering decisions –Can look through the data product online File specifications and algorithm theoretical basis documents (ATBD) –pps.gsfc.nasa.gov/GPMprelimdocs.html

16 16EGU 2014-Vienna Austria, April 30, 2014 Tools and Services THOR –Tool for looking at GPM data products –Includes functionality for making images including 3D images –IDL based but IDL not required –Available for: Linux, Windows, Mac OS –http://pps.gsfc.nasa.gov/thorrelease.html Subsetting available for multiple years (STORM currently limits) –Includes setting up subsets to support field campaigns 3 Hr Presentation (Data and data access) –Includes More detailed data description,strengths,limitations and status HDF5 format and tools for accessing Useful documentation Accessing data including the writing of scripts for automated access Use of THOR, STORM –Can with planning offer the tutorial at Universities and agencies –After a couple of presentations to get user feedback will package the presentation –Contact:
