warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE May 12, 2016    Access and distribution of Globally-merged, full-resolution (~4 km) IR data from GES DISC   

   Access and distribution of Globally-merged, full-resolution (~4 km) IR data from GES DISC will be terminated after 30 June 2016.

   The Globally-merged, full-resolution (~4 km) IR data from geostationary satellites is available from NOAA at ftp://ftp.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/precip/global_full_res_IR

Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM)

GPM LogoAn international satellite mission to be launched by NASA and JAXA in 2014 that will set new standards for precipitation measurements worldwide using a network of satellites united by the GPM Core Observatory.  For more information on the mission visit the Precipitation Measurement Missions informational web site.

The GES DISC will archive the data and provide the same expansive services currently offered to the user community for the TRMM data products. More information will be available as the data gets closer to the launch of the mission.

 

Search for Precipitation Data
