AMSR-E/Aqua L2B Global Swath Surface Precipitation GSFC Profiling Algorithm V003

Version 003
  • Abstract
    The AMSR-E/Aqua Level-2B precipitation product includes instantaneous surface precipitation rate and type over ice-free/snow-free land and ocean between 70 degrees north and south latitudes at 5.4 km, generated by the GPROF 2010 V. 2 algorithm using Level-2A TBs.
  • Version Description
    Version 3 utilizes the GPROF 2010 V. 2 algorithm and Version 3 Level-2A TBs as input and includes both rain and snow surface precipitation rates and types.
