The latent heating products of 2A12 and 3A12 over ocean surfaces should
be regarded as experimental- please confer first with the algorithm
developers (by the contacting DAAC at email address below) when using
the latent heating product over ocean. Over-land latent heating
estimates from TRMM products 2A12 and 3A12 should not be used, as they
have not been evaluated quantitatively or qualitatively.
