We have updated the GPM+SM2RAIN rainfall product to the new version 1.0

The dataset can be downloaded here: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3854817. With respect to the previous version this new version: 1) uses IMERG-LR as GPM rainfall product. 2) is now available from 2007 to 2018 with global coverage (+/-60°) over land (0.25° spatial and daily sampling).

PrISM rainfall product

A new manuscript has been published on Remote Sensing journal (MDPI) which provides theoretical background of PRISM algorithm and its use in Africa. The study confirms the importance of satellite soil moisture observations to enhance satellite rainfall estimates especially over data scarce regions like Africa where ground-based observations are scarce. The manuscript can be accessed…
