TRMM (TMPA) Rainfall Estimate L3 3 hour 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V7 (TRMM_3B42) at GES DISC

TMPA (3B42) dataset have been discontinued as of Dec. 31, 2019, and users are strongly encouraged to shift to the successor IMERG dataset (doi: 10.5067/GPM/IMERG/3B-HH/06). This dataset was the output from the TMPA (TRMM Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis) Algorithm. It provides precipitation estimates in the TRMM regions that have the (nearly-zero) bias of the ”TRMM Combined Instrument” precipitation estimate and the dense sampling of high-quality microwave data with fill-in using microwave-calibrated infrared estimates. The granule temporal coverage is 3 hours.
