Details/Specifics of Change

As a result of the system problems that occur on 07 July 2009 around 2300Z through 08 July 2009 around 1130Z several passes were missed. Some of these passes have been received and processed. The others are still to be received, except for 2 MetOp passes as indicated below.

NOAA-19 GACs from Svalbard received late between 0500Z and 1130Z
GHRR.NP.D09189.S0037.E0226.B0213738.SV (319.5 second internal gap)
GHRR.NP.D09189.S0227.E0407.B0213839.SV: (short - 88.5 sec gap between the end of previous and start of this GAC and 74.5 second internal gap)

The instrument data from these two fragmented MetOp-2/A passes will not be reprocessed (following are possible file names)

The missed passes to be processed after system reboot will be (orbital processing only, no granules): NSS.FRAC.M2.D09188.S2122.E2305.B1409697.SV
