documented in work of Kummerow et al. (2015) . GPROF utilizes a Bayesian approach that employs a priori information on the relationship between hydrometeor profiles and corresponding radiances. Using the DPR-combined algorithm as a primary source of precipitation profiles, coupled with radiative transfer models, GPROF computes Tbs for any sensor that forms part of the GPM constellation ( Kummerow et al. 2011 ). The algorithm first groups the entire a priori database by using ancillary information (TPW
