Since April 13, Météo-France new operational suite of Numerical
Weather Prediction systems have been assimilating SAPHIR observations in
real time. The new versions of the ARPEGE global model, running at
7.5km over Europe and 36 km at the antipodes, as well as of the regional
model ALADIN Réunion therefore benefit from SAPHIR data, disseminated
in real time by Eumetsat. The figure below shows in orange the location
of SAPHIR observations which were assimilated within the ARPEGE analysis
of April 15 at 00H UTC, together with the assimilated observations from
other AMSU-B/MHS microwave sounders.
of SAPHIR observations as well as the monitoring of other observations
used within the ARPEGE 4D-Var assimilation system is available online:
select ATOVS instruments in the satellite observations list,
MEGHA-TROPIQUES in the satellite list and AMSU-B/MHS/SAPHIR in the
instrument list to display time series of innovation statistics
(observation - model simulation) for each of the 6 SAPHIR channels.

are pleased to announce the "Joint workshop on uncertainties at
183GHz", which is aimed at identifying possible
explanations for biases observed between measured and simulated 183 GHz data.
workshop, sponsored by the Megha-Tropiques mission, will be held at University Pierre et Marie Curie
(Paris, France) from 29-30
you are willing to attend, please register via the workshop

We are happy to inform you about the release of an experimental version
of the TAPEER rainfall data.
The product consists in 1° x 1 ° x 1 day accumulated rainfall estimate
(in mm) and the associated uncertainty estimation.
The release concerns the June, July, August and September 2012, 2013 and
2014 over the tropical belt (30s-30n). The format is netCDF.
The TAPEER approach merges IR geostationary data at full resolution with
the GPM constellation microwave imagers, including SAPHIR on board
The finalized dataset, covering all the period since the launch of
Megha-Tropiques, will be released in the coming months via the ICARE
We will keep you posted on this formal release. By then any feedback
will be appreciated as it will help to improve the products before this
Please send your comments to me :
