Brief Description:

 These Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) data product are produced as part of NASA's MEaSUREs Program. Remote Sensing Systems generates SSM/I data product using a unified, physically based algorithm to simultaneously retrieve ocean wind speed (at 10 meters), atmospheric water vapor, cloud liquid water, and rain rate. This algorithm is a product of 20 years of refinements, improvements, and verifications.
