Summary
Abstract: The TRMM Precipitation Radar (PR), the first of its kind in space, is an electronically scanning radar, operating at 13.8 GHz that measures the 3-D rainfall distribution over both land and ocean, and defines the layer depth of the precipitation.

The objectives of 2A25 is to correct for the rain attenuation in measured radar reflectivity and to estimate the ... View entire text
