Reader for Mimic TPW data in netCDF format from SSEC.
This module implements reader for MIMIC_TPW2 netcdf files. MIMIC-TPW2 is an experimental global product of total precipitable water (TPW), using morphological compositing of the MIRS retrieval from several available operational microwave-frequency sensors. Originally described in a 2010 paper by Wimmers and Velden. This Version 2 is developed from an older method that uses simpler, but more limited TPW retrievals and advection calculations.
