TMI Image

Overview

The TMI is a multi-channel/dual-polarized microwave radiometer which will provide data related to rainfall rates over the oceans. The TMI data together with PR data will be the primary data set of precipitation measurement. The TMI data combined with the data from the PR and VIRS will also be utilized for deriving precipitation profiles.
