From 9:00 a.m. to noon (USA Mountain Time) Wednesday October 5, AMSR-E, Aquarius, IceBridge, ICESat/GLAS, MODIS, NISE, and SMAP data will not be available for ordering due to system maintenance.
NOTE: Reverb will be decommissioned in the coming months and replaced with Earthdata Search. All links to Reverb will be removed at that time.
AMSR-E/Aqua L2B Global Swath Surface Precipitation GSFC Profiling Algorithm, Version 3
The AMSR-E/Aqua Level-2B precipitation product includes instantaneous surface precipitation rate and type over ice-free/snow-free land and ocean between 89.24 degrees north and south latitudes at at 10 km spatial resolution along the track and 5 km spatial resolution along the scan. The data are generated by the GPROF 2010 Version 2 algorithm using Version 3 of the AMSR-E Level-2A Brightness Temperatures.
Note: Version 3 was implemented on November 11, 2015. Both Version 2 and Version 3 are available for approximately six months, after which, Version 2 will be discontinued.
Version 3 utilizes the GPROF 2010 Version 2 algorithm and Version 3 of the AMSR-E Level-2A Brightness Temperatures as input. Version 3 now includes both rain and solid precipitation rates and types, as well as ISO lineage metadata.
