 Product Description

This document provides basic information on 3B43, TRMM and Other Data Precipitation Product. The TRMM Multi-Satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA; computed at monthly intervals as 3B-43) combines the estimates generated by the TRMM and other satellites product (3B-42) and the CAMS global gridded rain gauge data, produced by NOAA's Climate Prediction Center and/or the global rain gauge product produced by the Global Precipitation Climatology Center (GPCC). The output is precipitation (units: mm/hr) for 0.25x0.25 degree grid boxes for each month. For more details of the algorithm, go to http://trmm.gsfc.nasa.gov/3b43.html
