Data Description

    MSPPS Mapped Data (MSPPS_FXAR) - AMSU-A and -B instruments on NOAA-15 provided a new opportunity to produce Microwave Surface and Precipitation Products System (MSPPS) from NOAA polar orbiter satellites similar to the Environmental Data Records (EDRs)] produced by Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center (FNMOC) from the DMSP and SSM/I instrument. MSPPS produces near real-time operational surface and precipitation products from the AMSU-A and AMSU-B instruments. These products are Antenna Temperature, Total Precipitable Water, Cloud Liquid Water, Sea Ice COncentration, Surface Emissivity at 23.8, 31.4 and 50.3 GHz, Surface Skin Temperture, Snow Cover, Rain Rate, and Ice Water Path. These data are produced as mapped geophysical products on an obit-by-orbit basis.
