GOES-13 Sounder IR data is not available. All products from GOES-13 (GOES-East) Sounder IR data have been halted and distribution has been stopped except the Sounder ASOS SCP products for CONUS, which are replaced with GOES-East Imager ASOS SCP products for CONUS. Engineers are investigating the problem.

PPP: Pre-Product Processing

Polar Pre-product Processing (PPP) produces Metop and NOAA POES 1b granule and orbital products from recorded and direct readout observation data. Instrument calibration and Earth location are appended to produce the 1b data set. PPP also produces the navigation products that are needed for Earth location and maintains the instrument calibration parameter inputs in accordance with instrument scientists' specifications.
