Short Name:
TRMM_TMPA_LandSeaMask

Land/Sea static mask relevant to TMPA precipitation 0.25x0.25 degree V2 (TRMM_TMPA_LandSeaMask) at GES DISC

Version 2 is the current version of the data set. Older versions will no longer be available and have been superseded by Version 2. This land sea mask originated from the NOAA group at SSEC in the 1980s. It was originally produced at 1/6 deg resolution, and then regridded for the purposes of GPCP, TMPA, and IMERG precipitation products. NASA code 610.2, Global Change Data Center, restructured this TMPA land sea mask to match the TMPA grid, and converted the file to CF-compliant netCDF4. Version 2 was created in May, 2019 to resolve detected inaccuracies in coastal regions. Users should be aware that this is a static mask, i.e. there is no seasonal or annual variability, and it is due for update. It is not recommended to be used outside of the aforementioned precipitation data.
