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

Version 3 eng; usa
  • 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 89.24 degrees north and south latitudes at at 10 km spatial resolution along the track and 5 km spatial resolution along the scan. The data are generated by the GPROF 2010 Version 2 algorithm using Version 3 of the AMSR-E Level-2A Brightness Temperatures.
