Summary
Abstract: The Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM) is being flown by the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA, U.S.) and the
National Aeronautics and Space Development Agency (NASDA, Japan) to
improve our quantitative knowledge of the 3-dimensional distribution
of precipitation in the tropics. TRMM has a passive microwave
radiometer (TRMM Microwave Imager, TMI), the first active ... View entire text
