I would like to know if resources exist for downloading GPM data in R. I'm aware of the Hydrological Data Discovery Tools ("hddtools") package, which can be used for accessing Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) data but does not include a library for GPM.

I created a function to download data IMERG HDF5 and convert them to raster GeoTIFF. You can see the code in https://github.com/AybarCL/GPM-data-management

  • Luis Thanks very much for providing a solution to my question. I will try the code then get back to you. Many thanks.
