warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE Apr 04, 2014    TRMM Level 3 Products for February 2014   

Due to the recent hardware issue, we noticed that all TRMM Level 3 products for February 2014 were missing.  We will be processing and replacing these products shortly.  If you have a standing order/s for any of these, then you will receive another data notification for these products after they are archived.

 The products being replaced include:

 3All

3A12

3A25

3A26

3B31

& Browse.

 If you had already obtained this data, then you do not need to take any further action, since the data being replaced is identical.  We apologize for any confusion that this may cause.

 Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions.   Thank you

for your patience and understanding.

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.

Precipitation Data Services at the DISC

  • Facilitate data access, information processing to support precipitation research and decision making
  • Nurture cross disciplinary precipitation related research, such as energy and water cycle, aerosol-precipitation interactions

The data holdings at the PDISC consist of remote sensing, in-situ and forecast (to be added in the future) precipitation and ancillary data. The PDISC also provides access to near-real-time and historical precipitation data. The TRMM Online Visualization and Analysis System TOVAS provides a fast and easy way to access the most popular products. While you're here, check out:
