Rain and Snow over California
Base image captured on 25 October 2021, by the VIIRS instrument, aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite overlaid with Precipitation Rate from IMERG.
Image of rain and snow over California. The underlying true-color image was acquired on 25 October 2021 by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument, aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite. Colors overlaid on the base image indicate precipitation rates based on Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) (IMERG) data. Yellows to Red in this image show rates of about 1mm to 5mm/hour; and green in this image show rates of about 0.1mm to 1mm/hour. Snow is shown in blue over the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the center of the image. Data for this image are collected by multiple satellites in the the joint NASA/Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory.
