A cloud and precipitation feature database from 9 years of TRMM observations

  title={A cloud and precipitation feature database from 9 years of TRMM observations},
  author={Chuntao Liu and Edward J. Zipser},
An event-based method of analyzing the measurements from multiple satellite sensors is presented by using observations of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) precipitation radar (PR), Microwave Imager (TMI), Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS), and Lightning Imaging System (LIS). First, the observations from PR, VIRS, TMI, and LIS are temporally and spatially collocated. Then the cloud and precipitation features are defined by grouping contiguous pixels using various criteria… CONTINUE READING
