TRMM Microwave Imager Article: Thursday October 20, 2011 TRMM Used To Examine Bay Of Bengal Tropical Cyclone The accurate measurement of the tropical rainfall around the globe is one of the main objectives of the TRMM satellite. The TRMM satellite has also proven useful for global monitoring of tropical cyclone development.

The image on the upper left shows a rainfall analysis that was made from TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) data.
