The GPM Ground Validation Multi-Radar/Multi-Sensor (MRMS) Precipitation Reanalysis for Satellite Validation Product dataset contains precipitation rate and type estimates, quality control products, and precipitation corrective factors products. These data products were created using the NOAA MRMS System which ingests Weather Surveillance Radar 88 Doppler (WSR-88D) radar data, Rapid Update Cycle (RAP) model analysis fields, and gauge data. It should be noted that these data products are not standard MRMS. Significant post-processing is applied to MRMS to generate products specifically adapted to satellite purposes and needs over North America. These data are available from March 2, 2014 through October 30, 2018 in ASCII format.
