SSMIS Pre-processing Package - DMSP

Abstract:
This package processes data from the SSMIS instrument on board the US Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) series of satellites. The first SSMIS was launched in October 2003. As its main output, SSMIS_PP produces BUFR files of brightness temperature from the SSMIS instrument. These brightness temperatures are corrected for a number of systematic effects in the SSMIS data stream. The primary application foreseen for this data is direct assimilation in NWP assimilation systems.
