TRMM Precipitation Radar Surface Rain L3 1 month 5 degree x 5 degree V7 (TRMM_3A26) at GES DISC

Version 7 eng
  • Abstract
    This dataset contains distributions of monthly surface rainfall. These data were derived from rain rate statistics and include the estimated values of the probability distribution function of the space-time rain rates at four levels (2 km, 4 km, 6 km, and path-averaged) and the mean, standard deviation, and probability of rain derived from these distributions. Three different rain rate estimates are used as input to the algorithm: (1) the standard Z-R (or 0th-order estimate having no attenuation correction); (2) the Hitschfield-Bordan (H-B); and (3) the rain rates taken from 2A25.

    Quality
    Quality arrays are included in the files, to be populated in the future, when characteristics of the sensor are better understood, and enhancements are made to the science algorithms. Quality indicators will be available for each 5-degree grid box in the monthly rainfall map.
