TitleTropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) - 2A25
Date2013
AbstractThe Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) 2A25, "PR Prole", produces an estimate of vertical rainfall rate pro le for each radar beam. The rainfall rate estimate is given at each resolution cell of the PR radar. To compare with ground-based radar data, the attenuation corrected Z pro le is also given. The average rainfall rate between the two pre-de ned altitudes is calculated for each beam position. Other output data include parameters of Z-R relationships, integrated rain rate of each beam, range bin numbers of rain layer boundaries, and many intermediate parameters. The following sections describe the structure and contents of the format. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall.
