Abstract

This work presents the validation of ground based rainfall measurement with TRMM products and GPCC data. The bias error between ground and satellite rainfall measurements was found to be ± 15 %. The TRMM 3B43 agreed with rain gauge rainfall measurement with correlation coefficient of 0.835. Consequently, for sea and remote areas where rain gauge cannot cover, TRMM 3B43 V6 is recommended for use in lieu of ground measurement in Malaysia and its environs.
