AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified L2B Global Swath Surface Precipitation V001

Metadata Updated: February 12, 2024

This AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified Level-2B data set reports instantaneous surface precipitation rates and types (over land and ocean) and precipitation profiles (over ocean). The data are derived by applying the AMSR-E/AMSR2 unified algorithm to L1R data obtained by the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR) for EOS (AMSR-E) and AMSR2 instruments.
