GPM GMI unpacked data L1A 1.5 hours 13 km V05 (GPM_1AGMI) at GES DISC

Version 5 is the current version of the data set. Version 4 is no longer available and has been superseded by Version 5. The 1AGMI product contains unaltered data directly from the Global Microwave Imager (GMI) aboard the GPM core satellite. The GMI is a multi-channel, conical- scanning, microwave radiometer. If there is enough bandwidth, the entire circle of GMI samples will be sent down. The 1AGMI product's swaths 4 and 5 contain all of the samples that are sent down. Later products only use the subset of these data that contains the Earth view, hot load, and cold sky samples.
