TRMM Level 3 Monthly 0.5 degree x 0.5 degree Convective and Stratiform Heating CSHEntry ID: GES_DISC_TRMM_CSH_V6
Abstract: The average operating altitude for TRMM was changed from 350 to 403 km during the period of August 7-24, 2001. This orbit boost maneuver extended the mission life significantly. All post-boost data products had been released by the TRMM Science Project, as of early December 2001. All TRMM data products (post-boost and pre-boost) are available via the TRMM data search-and-order system at http://mirador.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/mirador/presentNavigation.pl?t... . The time period before August 7, 2001 is referred to as pre-boost, and the time period after August 24, 2001 is referred to as post-boost. [Summary provided by the GES-DISC DAAC]
