MSPPS Orbital DataEntry ID: gov.noaa.class.MSPPS_ORB
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Microwave Surface and Precipitation Products System (MSPPS) produces near real-time operational surface and precipitation products from the AMSU-A, AMSU-B and MHS instruments aboard NOAA and METOP satellites. The operational products include Antenna Temperatures, Total Precipitable Water, Cloud Liquid Water, Sea Ice Concentration, Land Surface Temperature, Land Surface Emissivity at ... 23.8, 31.4 and 50.3 GHz, Snow Cover, Rain Rate, Snow Water Equivalent and Ice-Water Path. Both Level-II (orbital) and Level-III (grid) products are available.The MSPPS orbital products include Antenna Temperatures from AMSU-A and AMSU-B/MHS, Total Precipitable Water, Cloud Liquid Water, Sea Ice Concentration, Land Surface Temperature, Land Surface Emissivity at 23.8, 31.4 and 50.3 GHz from AMSU-A and Snow Cover, Rain Rate, Ice-Water Path and Snow-Water Equivalent from AMSU-B/MHS. These level 2 products are available on an orbital basis for each instrument in BUFR and HDF-EOS formats. For validation purpose, the similar products from SSMI Sensor Data Records and Environmental Data Records are also converted into HDF-EOS format and included as a part of the MSPPS suite and are available to users.
