performed better in humid regions than in arid regions and overestimated light rainfall while underestimating moderate and heavy rainfall. Reanalyses combine model forecast with observations to provide globally continuous fields of the analyzed observations and other variables derived from the background model. While observationally driven, their ability to estimate physical processes, such as precipitation, depends on many factors, including observational coverage and model performance, and is

precipitation rates with 0.25° × 0.25° latitude–longitude resolution obtained from the combination of the three TRMM sensors mentioned above as well as microwave and infrared sensors aboard other satellites. The satellite-derived 3-hourly precipitation estimates are bias corrected with monthly surface observations from gauge stations. After more than 17 years, TRMM went out of operation in April 2015. In this study, the latest version 3B42 V7 is used for the period 1998–2014. Several studies have confirmed
