You are invited to the NASA Earthdata Webinar "TRMM and
GPM Precipitation Products and Data Services at the NASA GES DISC"
Authors: Zhong Liu and James Acker
Presenter: James Acker
Among the many data types
available from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services
Center (GES DISC), precipitation data is both one of the most recognizable and
most scientifically useful. The GES DISC features data generated by two missions:
the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), which collected data from 1997
to 2015, and the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, which began
collecting data in 2014 and is continuing at present. The GES DISC provides
multiple ways for users to acquire data from these missions, and several
different Web services that enable visualization and initial analyses.
This presentation will describe and distinguish precipitation data products
available from TRMM and GPM, delineate the different ways that users can get
the data, and also demonstrate the visualization and analysis tools and
services provided by the GES DISC for these important data sets. Examples of
recent noteworthy precipitation events will be used as exemplars for meteorology
and climate research.
