International MODIS/AIRS Processing Package

 AMSR-E Level 2 Rain Rate and Rain Type

   This release consists of software that takes input direct broadcast binary IMAPP AMSR-E calibration and geolocation files and retrieves Rain Rate (mm/hr) and Rain Type (Convective Rain percentage) and writes the output to an HDF-EOS product file.

The software has been converted from the original DAAC software to run on direct broadcast input files. The output files are very similar to the files distributed by the NSIDC DAAC. Please see the AMSR-E Rain Rate product web page for information on the algorithm and algorithm developers. This release was based upon DAAC version B05. It is supported on Intel Linux platforms.
