Previously announced updates to the NOAA-KLM preprocessor (level 1B process
) will be made on February 21, between 12:30pm and 1:30 pm local time. The
first orbits processed after the change are listed below. This update
includes a switch to the NOAA-15 HIRS 24-hour calibration file processing
that will improve the frequency of the updates. The NOAA-16 AVHRR
processing will be updated to account for a pitch error rather than treating
the along track error as a clock error. This includes a software change.
All changes should have no adverse impact on the data nor should they
require changes by the user community.
Please contact us if you have any questions or problems.
