Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi-NPP) Sounder SIPS
Suomi-NPP Sounder SIPS
NASA's Suomi-NPP Sounder SIPS is responsible for processing and reprocessing data products from two Suomi-NPP instruments: Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) and Cross-Track Infrared Sounder (CrIS), collectively referred to as the Cross-track Infrared and Microwave Sounding Suite (CrIMSS). The science measurements may include products such as vertical temperature profile, vertical moisture profile, and vertical pressure profile (including surface). The Suomi-NPP Sounder SIPS is responsible for the production and general quality assessment of CrIMSS products. It will process Level 0 data to Level 1, Level 2 and global gridded Level 3 sounder products using the scientific algorithm software from the Suomi-NPP Science Team’s Sounder Discipline Group. The Suomi-NPP Sounder SIPS delivers all data products along with scientific algorithm software, associated metadata, and documentation to NASA's Goddard Earth Sciences Data Information Services Center (GES DISC). Suomi-NPP Sounder SIPS acquires near-real-time algorithms for selected products and process and delivers these products within three hours for distribution through NASA's Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE).
