GPM IMERG Final Precipitation L3 Half Hourly 0.1 degree x 0.1 degree V06 (GPM_3IMERGHH) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GPM_3IMERGHH_06


Summary
Abstract: Version 06 is the current version of the data set. Older versions will no longer be available and have been superseded by Version 06.
This is the Level 3 IMERG Final Half Hourly 10 x 10 km (GPM_3IMERGHH).

The Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) is the unified U.S. algorithm that provides the Day-1 multi-satellite precipitation product for the U.S. GPM team.

Purpose: The Integrated Multi-Satellite Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) algorithm is designed to leverage the international constellation of precipitation-relevant satellites to create a long record of uniformly time/space gridded precipitation estimates for the globe. The algorithm is focused on creating the best estimate at each time step, meaning that it is not a Climate Data Record, although the ideal is as homogenous a record as possible.
