The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission ( TRMM ) Sensor Package

  title={The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission ( TRMM ) Sensor Package},
  author={William Barnes},
This note is intended to serve primarily as a reference guide to users wishing to make use of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission data. It covers each of the three primary rainfall instruments: the passive microwave radiometer, the precipitation radar, and the Visible and Infrared Radiometer System on board the spacecraft. Radiometric characteristics, scanning geometry, calibration procedures, and data products are described for each of these three sensors.
