Short Name:

GPM MHS on NOAA-18 Common Calibrated Brightness Temperature L1C 1.5 hours 17 km V05 (GPM_1CNOAA18MHS) 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 Version 4 is no longer available and has been superseded by Version 5. All 1C products have a common L1C data structure, simple and generic. Each L1C swath includes scan time, latitude and longitude, scan status, quality, incidence angle, Sun glint angle, and the intercalibrated brightness temperature (Tc). One or more swaths are included in a product. The radiometer data are recalibrated to a common basis so that precipitation products derived from them are consistent. 1CMHS contains common calibrated brightness temperature from the MHS passive microwave instrument flown on the NOAA and METOPS satellites. Swath S1 is the only swath and has 5 channels (89.0GHzV, 157.0GHzV, 183.3GHz+/-250MHzH, 183.3GHz+/- 500MHzH, and 190.3 GHzV). MHS is very similar to AMSU-B. The scan period is 2.667s.
