GPM MHS on NOAA-18 Common Calibrated Brightness Temperature L1C 1.5 hours 17 km V05 (GPM_1CNOAA18MHS) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GPM_1CNOAA18MHS_05

Abstract: Version 5 is the current version of the data set. Version 4 is no longer available and has been superseded by Version 5.

All 1C products have a common L1C data structure, simple and generic. Each L1C swath includes scan time, latitude and longitude, scan status, quality, incidence angle, Sun glint angle, and the intercalibrated brightness temperature (Tc). One or more swaths are included in a ... View entire text

Quality The L1C products contain brightness temperatures that have been intercalibrated to a common basis and are no longer the original instrument brightness temperatures. Channels not relevant to precipitation retrievals are not included. The recalibration for most radiometers is a simple 2-point, linear adjustment. For the water vapor sounding channels, this is a simple offset. In the case of AMSR2, ... View entire text
