Abstract:
The purpose of the TRMM Ground Validation (GV) program is to develop validation methods and to obtain reliable surface-based data during the TRMM mission, with which the TRMM satellite measurements can be verified. The TRMM GV network consists of four primary or direct data (DD) sites and seven direct product (DP) sites. The four DD sites are Darwin, Australia; Melbourne, Florida; Houston Texas; and Kwajalein. The seven DP sites are located in Taiwan, Israel, Thailand, Brazil, Guam, and special climatology-multiple radar sites in Florida and Texas. This TRMM GV product 2A53 consists of a Half-Hourly 2 km Rain Map of the Houston, Texas radar site.
