GPM AMSUB on NOAA17 (GPROF) Climate-based Radiometer Precipitation Profiling L3 1 day 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree V05 (GPM_3GPROFNOAA17AMSUB_DAY_CLIM) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GPM_3GPROFNOAA17AMSUB_DAY_CLIM_05


Summary
Abstract: The "CLIM" products differ from their "regular" counterparts (without the "CLIM" in the name) by the ancillary data they use. They are Climate-Reference products, which requires homogeneous ancillary data over the climate time series. Hence, the ECMWF-Interim (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, 2-3 months lag behind the regular production) reanalysis is used as ancillary data to ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of the 3GPROF algorithm is to provide monthly and daily mean precipitation and related retrieved parameters from the Level 2 GPROF precipitation profiling algorithm for the GPM core and constellation satellites. Each 3GPROF product contains global 0.25 degree x 0.25 degree gridded monthly/daily means. Because this product is an accumulation of the Level 2 retrieval products, much more information is available via the GPROF Level 2 documentation.

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 day 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 ...
