05/01/2020 - The DPR Ka radar data acquisition has been restored and PPS is expecting to begin releasing research quality products after May 14, 2020 with a catalog of impacted orbits.

04/27/2020 - At 07:56:59GMT (3:56:59AM EDT) on April 22, 2020 both units on the Dual Precipitation Radar reset from Observation Mode to Standby Mode. The recovery process is ongoing. GMI operations and data products continue to be nominal during this time.

04/23/2020 - Starting on June 1, 2020, for 3B42/3B43 (TMPA) products, PPS will start STORM support for HDF5 and cease support of HDF4. There will only be ONE version of the 3B42/3B43 products visible in STORM at any one time.

01/29/2020 - PPS has commenced processing new satellite METOPC MHS GPM data starting with Dec 11, 2019 data. L1C METOPC MHS GPM and L2-L3 GPROFMETOPC MHS GPM data and climatology products are available.

11/19/2019 - 1C ATMS inter-calibration tables for both NPP and NOAA-20 have been updated to account for the ATMS SDR calibration update that occurred on Oct 15, 2019. As a result, PPS will retro process ATMS NPP and NOAA-20 data starting October 15, 2019 orbit numbers 41275 for NPP and 9878 for NOAA-20.

10/21/2019 - The Precipitation Processing System (PPS) has begun the TRMM and GPM Goddard Convective-Stratiform Heating (CSH) V06A level 2 and level 3 data reprocessing on, Monday October 21, 2019. This reprocessing will cover the whole life for TRMM and the period from the launch to current for GPM.

03/27/2019 - PPS has commenced IMERG data reprocessing for IMERG V06. PPS will begin with GPM-era data, and then reprocess the TRMM-era data. The GPM era will begin with June 2014, while TRMM-era products will span June 2000 - May 2014

03/01/2019 - PPS will be doing a full reprocessing of L2-L3 PRPS MT1 SAPHIR as V06A starting next week. There will also be a CLIM product as with current GPROF data products.

10/30/2018 - TRMM L2-L3 Combined V06 reprocessing is expected to start later this week. Files will appear starting from December 1997 and working forward.

Notice to STORM Users (May 11, 2020):
Following a reset of the DPR to Standby Mode that occurred on April 22, 2020, the DPR Ka radar data acquisition has been restored. PPS is releasing the DPR and downstream data for distribution from April 22, 2020 - April 30, 2020. There are continuing short data outages for the radar that are being investigated and corrective measures are scheduled to be applied on May 14, 2020. PPS will be releasing May 2020 data in stages with an expected return to normal data availability soon after the corrective measures are applied. For Level-1 and Level-2 products users should check the dataQuality flag given per scan to check validity of the data. For a list of orbits that were impacted by the radar anomalies, please see: GPM Spacecraft Data Discrepancies and Anomalous Events Table or here.

PPS Data Access - to search for GPM and TRMM data, order custom subsets and set up subscriptions.

PPS Public Archive - to access GPM and TRMM standard products via online ftp.

These are the products available to the public. To retrieve data go to PPS Data Access or PPS Public Archive.
