Inter-calibration Of Radiometer Data

Inter-calibration of Radiometer Data

Purpose of L1C Algorithms

  • Produce inter-calibrated brightness temperature (Tc) products for GPM Core and constellation satellites.
  • Provide uniform and consistent data sets for precipitation retrieval.

Early Mission Phase

  • All Base and 1C products will be made available to X-CAL team.
  • PPS will be prepared to
    • fix L1C code if necessary.
    • receive new APC coefficients for 1CGMI and make code changes if needed.
    • replace inter-calibration tables as new tables become available from X-CAL team.
    • reprocess all Base/1C data if any change is made.
