NASA MEASURES Precipitation Ensemble based on AMSRE AQUA NASA PPS L1C V05 Tbs 1-orbit L2 Swath 12x12km V1 (PRECIP_AMSRE_AQUA) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The data presented in this level 2 orbital product are rain rate estimates expressed as mm/hour determined from brightness temperatures (Tbs) obtained from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-E (AMSR-E) flown on the AQUA satellite. Most of the products generated in this data set are based upon the algorithms developed for the 3rd Algorithm Intercomparison Project (AIP-3) of the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP). Details of these 15 algorithms and development of a quality score which is a measure of confidence in the estimate, along with processing and algorithmic flags, can be found in the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD). The data in this product cover the period from 2002 to 2011 with one file per orbit.
