Entry ID: 01-algo2-99

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) defines and describes in detail the algorithm that processes the LIS data into the basic HDF (Hierarchical Data Format) orbit granule data storage structure (a level 1B/2A data product).

The LIS is an Earth Observing System (EOS) instrument on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) platform designed to acquire ... View entire text

Access Constraints All ATBDs are provided in PDF format which can be viewed with Adobe
Acrobat. Adobe Acrobat is a freely downloadable document viewer.

Data from TRMM are archived and
distributed by the Goddard Space Flight Center Earth Sciences
Distributed Active Archive Center (GES DAAC). Data beginning September
1, 1998 have been approved for formal release. Also available, on an
interim basis (i.e., not reprocessed), is an initial set of TRMM data
products (with acquisition dates of June 1 through August 31). Data
can be accessed from the DAAC's TRMM Data Search and Order Web
Interface at http: //daac.gsfc.nasa.gov.
