Historic Precipitation in South Carolina

This image of estimated precipitation from 9/26 through 10/5 is generated from the Integrated MultisatellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) data product. Parts of South Carolina received more than 600 mm (24 in) of rain during this period. Image: SSAI/NASA GSFC.

Measuring Global Precipitation

The joint NASA/Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory collects global precipitation data from 65˚ north and south latitude, and can collect data about storms as they form in the tropics and move to more temperate latitudes.



The Earth Observing System Data and Information System is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. It provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources—satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and various other programs.

From TRMM to GPM: The Evolution of NASA Precipitation Data

NASA’s global precipitation data and data processing systems have come a long way from the launch of TRMM in 1997 to the ongoing GPM mission.
