Comparison of 1-minute rain rate derived from TRMM satellite data and raingauge data for microwave applications in Nigeria

A comparative statistical study of derived 1-min rain rate using data obtained from Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite (3A12 V6 and 3B43V6) and raingauge measurements are presented. 30-years data of rainfall intensities obtained from the Nigerian Meteorological Agency rain-gauge network and 9-years rainfall data obtained from TRMM satellite are used.
