Scientists Gather in Denver for the 2011 PMM Science Team Meeting

Over 150 scientists from 10 different countries are meeting in Denver, Colorado, to discuss rain and snow and how to measure them from space. Only once a year members of the Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) Science Team come together to discuss the science surrounding both the current Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and the upcoming Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission that will launch in 2014.

This document describes the algorithm and processing sequence for the Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG).  This algorithm is intended to intercalibrate, merge, and interpolate “all” satellite microwave precipitation estimates, together with microwave-calibrated infrared (IR) satellite estimates, precipitation gauge analyses, and potentially other precipitation estimators at fine time and space scales for the TRMM and GPM eras over the entire globe.  The system is run several times for each observation time, first giving a quick estimate and successively providin
