Abstract: The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)'s 'day-1' combined rada/radiometer algorithm uses a rain-profiling approach which gives as much importance to the measurement of the TRMM satellite's precipitation radar (PR) and the TRMM microwave imager (TMI) as their respective intrinsic ambiguities warrant, which avoids any ad hoc shortcuts that might introduce large biases in the rain estimates, yet which is simple enough to be operatrional with TRMM is launched in late 1997.
