08/27/2020 - The GPM spacecraft experienced an anomaly that caused an interruption of all science instrument data beginning on 8/19/2020 around 1200 UTC. As of 8/26/2020, all data collection was resumed and instruments are in good condition. Click here for details.

07/07/2020 - PPS will start reprocessing the GPM Spectral Latent Heating (SLH) V06B L2 and L3 data on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, to correct a bias between the KuPR near-surface precipitation and vertically integrated latent heating in V06A.

07/06/2020 - PPS is announcing a new TKIO-3.97 release which includes the latest production formats including V06X radar products and 3B42/3 in HDF5.

05/11/2020 - PPS is releasing DPR and downstream data from the April 2020 DPR reset event. Click here for the catalog of impacted orbits.

05/01/2020 - The DPR Ka radar data acquisition has been restored and PPS is expecting to begin releasing research quality products after May 14, 2020 with a catalog of impacted orbits.

04/27/2020 - At 07:56:59GMT (3:56:59AM EDT) on April 22, 2020 both units on the Dual Precipitation Radar reset from Observation Mode to Standby Mode. The recovery process is ongoing. GMI operations and data products continue to be nominal during this time.

04/23/2020 - Starting on June 1, 2020, for 3B42/3B43 (TMPA) products, PPS will start STORM support for HDF5 and cease support of HDF4. There will only be ONE version of the 3B42/3B43 products visible in STORM at any one time.
