The precipitation radar (PR) on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite has high vertical resolution, and ground radar (GR) has relatively good capability to detect weak precipitation and relatively good horizontal resolution. The joint utilization of PR and GR will be an important factor in maximizing the benefit to be reaped from both instruments. In this paper, we will blend the PR data and GR reflectivity in Nanjing, China based on image fusion algorithm. Integrating PR and GR mainly includes following steps: spatial-temporal matchup of PR and GR data, image fusion algorithms selection and quality evaluation of the fused image.
