Land/Sea static mask relevant to IMERG precipitation 0.1x0.1 degree V1 (GPM_IMERG_LandSeaMask) at GES DISC
Entry ID: GPM_IMERG_LandSeaMask_1


Summary
Abstract: The current version of this mask originates from the NOAA group at SSEC in the 1980s. It was originally produced at 1/6 deg resolution, and then regridded for the purposes of GPCP, TMPA, and IMERG precipitation products. NASA code 610.2, Global Change Data Center, has restructured this IMERG land sea mask to match the IMERG grid and has converted the file from netCDF3 to netCDF4.

Users should be aware that this is a static mask, i.e. there is no seasonal or annual variability, and it is due for update. It is not recommended to be used outside of the aforementioned precipitation data.
