Remote Sensing Systems has just released the GPM Microwave Imager (GMI) ocean product suite.

The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite has a microwave radiometer onboard called GMI (GPM Microwave Imager).  The GPM satellite was launched on February 27th, 2014 with the GMI instrument started a few days later.  One of the primary differences between GPM and other satellites with microwave radiometers is the orbit, which is inclined 65 degrees, allowing a full sampling of all local Earth times repeated approximately every 2 weeks.
