Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate (JPEG) - MSG - Indian Ocean 41.5 degrees E

Abstract:
The Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate (MPE) product consists of the near-real-time rain rates in mm/hr for each Meteosat image in original pixel resolution. The algorithm is based on the combination of polar orbiter microwave measurements and images in the Meteosat IR channel by a so-called blending technique. The MPE is most suitable for convective precipitation. Applications and Users: Operational weather forecasting in areas with poor or no radar coverage, especially in Africa and Asia. The polar-orbiter microwave measurement data are crucial for the generation of the MPE product and any unavailability of the data has a direct impact on the availability of the MPE product. The polar-orbiter microwave measure data are provided by an external data provider, and any liability that may arise due to delays or interruptions in the delivery of these data and consequently of the MPE product service cannot be attributed to EUMETSAT. A link to the original GRIB product can be found in the resources below.
