Brief Description:

The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) is a joint space mission between NASA and Japan's National Space Development Agency designed to monitor and study tropical and subtropical precipitation and the associated release of energy. The mission uses 5 instruments: Precipitation Radar (PR), TRMM Microwave Imager (TMI), Visible Infrared Scanner (VIRS), Clouds & Earths Radiant Energy System (CERES) and Lightning Imaging Sensor (LSI). Many products on varying grids and temporal resolutions are available. The TMI is the main instrument used for precipitation. The satellite was launched on November 27, 1997 from the Tanegashima Space Center in TanegashimaJapan.
