Abstract: The Advanced Microwave Precipitation Radiometer (AMPR) was deployed during the
Texas-Florida Underflights (TEFLUN-A); the first of three TRMM ground
validation missions. AMPR data were collected at four microwave frequencies
(10.7, 19.35, 37.1 and 85.5 GHz) for the period of 05 April 1999 through 06 May
1999. The TEFLUN-A mission was to study convection over sub-tropical land and
ocean regions within the range of research-quality radar, lightning,
radiosonde, and raingage sites in Florida and Texas.
