Summary
Abstract: This document provides basic information on 3A12, TMI Monthly 0.5 deg. x 0.5 deg. Profiling. Algorithm 3A12 produces global 0.5 deg. x 0.5 deg. monthly gridded means using 2A12 data. Vertical hydrometeor profiles and surface rainfall means are computed. Various pixel counts are also reported. The granule size is one month.This document provides basic information on 3A12, TMI Monthly 0.5 deg. x 0.5 ... View entire text
