Summary

Gridded data of retrieved:
(1) column-integrated cloud liquid water (g/m2) computed using a Weng algorithm, and with a spatial resolution of 0.25 x 0.25 degrees;
(2)Column-integrated water vapor (gm/m2) using a Schlussel algorithm;and
(3)rainfall rates (mm/hr) from a Ferriday algorithm.
Data are from SSM/I instruments on multiple platforms.
The values are on a rectangular grid.
