Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The MIRS was developed with an end-to-end capability of calibrating and characterizing the radiances measured from satellite-based microwave instruments and retrieving the environmental data records with state of the art algorithm science. This system is an upgrade from the NESDIS operational Microwave Surface and Precipitation Products System (MSPPS) and is a one-stop resource for ... View entire text

Purpose: PURPOSE: To produce environmental data to support operational and scientific research needs for precipitation and surface products using brightness temperatures from microwave instruments.
