Science Steering Group.; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;] The Precipitation Radar (PR) onboard the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite is the first spaceborne radar designed to measure the vertical structure of tropospheric precipitation. The PR, operating at GHz, is a element active phased array that allows fast and sophisticated cross-track scanning over a swath width of   The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite was launched on 27 November , and data from Goals of TRMM established by the Science Steering Group in 1) To advance the earth science system objective of understanding This group released a report establishing the science priorities for the mission in These goals ()CO;2. This book offers a complete overview of the measurement of precipitation from space, which has made considerable advancements during the last two decades. This is mainly due to the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission and a carefully maintained constellation of satellites hosting microwave  › Earth Sciences & Geography › Atmospheric Sciences.

Its scientists advance understanding of the Earth and its life-sustaining environment, the Sun, the solar system, and the wider universe beyond. The Directorate is part of Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, ://   Roy Warren Spencer (born Decem ) is a meteorologist, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and the U.S. Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR-E) on NASA's Aqua satellite. He has served as senior scientist for climate studies at NASA's Marshall Space Flight ://(scientist). Moreover, precipitation EWIs were also compared with Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) dataset. TRMM provides global daily precipitation estimates from a wide variety of meteorological satellites at ° spatial resolution for the period – (Huffman et al., ).
