Dear TRMM user,

The units for precipitation in both 3B42 and 3B43 are, mm/hr. For the 3B42 daily, mm.

I would suggest reading their documents in their dataset landing pages (listed below) to become more familiar with the datasets,

https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/datasets/TRMM_3B42_7/summary
https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/datasets/TRM ... _7/summary
https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/datasets/TRMM_3B43_7/summary

If you are new to these datasets, you might also want to check them with our Giovanni system,

Also, you should check this important message about the end of product for TMPA (3B42, 3B43),
