The H01 product is the Precipitation rate at ground by MW conical scanners. It provides instantaneous precipitation maps (mm/hr) generated from MW conical scanning radiometers in sun synchronous orbit.
The H02B product is the Precipitation rate at ground by MW cross-track scanners. It provides instantaneous precipitation maps (mm/hr) generated from MW cross-track scanning radiometers in sun synchronous orbit and is currently based on data from AMSU-A/MHS onboard Metop and NOAA satellites.
These products are currently available in BUFR format. The new netCDF version of these operational products will be available from 18 March and are planned to supersede the BUFR products on 7 June 2021.
