Ojo JS, Omotosho TV (2013) Comparison of 1-min rain rate derived from TRMM
satellite data and raingauge data for microwave applications in Nigeria.
pass showed that Calvin had become very well organized and the TMI rainfall analysis showed that rain was falling at a rate of over 50 mm/hr (~2 inches) in powerful thunderstorms near Calvin's center of circulation.
One might not expect a 1:1 correspondence between the TRMM
and rain gauge or actual rainfall given the fact that the rain gauges provide local measurements, whereas the TRMM
integrate observations over much larger domains (covered area: 0.
This analysis is also complemented by TRMM
satellite estimates (Figure 8b).
At this point, it is instructive to review the TRMM
satellite since it is the only operational satellite flying both a radar and radiometer that concurrently monitor the same volumes of the terrestrial environment.
With its full array of remote measurement radars, the ER-2 in Brazil will follow the same path as the TRMM
satellite, but at a much lower altitude,'' a spokesperson for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said.
TYPHOON NEOGORI/NASA: NASA's TRMM
Satellite Sees Heavy Rainfall in Typhoon Neoguri On July 7 at 2:41 a.
NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite called TRMM
satellite passed over Lehar and measured rainfall and cloud heights to give scientists an understanding of how the storm is behaving.

microwave imager (TMI) satellite for Little River Watershed Tifton, Georgia.
The disparity in rainfall amounts, which was greatest for the months of June to September, especially at the inland stations, was attributed to the inability of the TRMM
satellite to capture the super cells in the numerous cloud clusters that were prevalent over the region during these months of the year.
HEAVY RAINFALL/SATELLITE: NASA's TRMM
satellite rainfall data was overlaid on an enhanced visible/infrared image from NO's GOES-East satellite showing cloud and rainfall extend.
The GPM Core Observatory builds on the sensor technology developed for the TRMM
mission, with two innovative new instruments.
