GPM AMSR-2 on GCOM-W1 (GPROF) Radiometer Precipitation Profiling L3 1 month 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V05 (GPM_3GPROFGCOMW1AMSR2) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GPM_3GPROFGCOMW1AMSR2_05


Summary
Abstract: Version 5 is the current version of the data set. Version 4 is no longer available and has been superseded by Version 5.

3GPROF products provide global gridded monthly/daily precipitation averages from multiple satellites that can be used for climate studies. The 3GPROF products are based on retrievals from high-quality microwave sensors, which are sensitive to liquid and ice-phase precipitation hydrometeors in the atmosphere.

Quality The primary limitation of the 3GPROF product is the reliance on a single sensor for each output file, thus limiting the available sampling to two times a month or less, except at high latitudes. In addition, with the exception of the GMI, TMI, and SAPHIR sensors, all of the other sensors are in Sun-synchronous orbits, meaning that they observe a given point on the Earth's surface at the same local ...
