Precipitation: OVERVIEW

warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE Nov 23, 2015    Phasing out TRMM Version 6   

GES DISC is in the process of phasing out TRMM Version 6 data that covered the period December 1997 - June 2011. These data were superseded and obsoleted by the much improved Version 7. We also do remind that data from the TMPA Version 7 are still produced, even though the TRMM satellite was decommissioned in April, and deorbited in June, 2015. The Version 6 data will first be reduced in visibility in web search engines  and documentation, and then physically removed from the on-line archives by the end of February, 2016.

Welcome to the Precipitation Data and Information Services Center (PDISC). Here are some links to help you get started:

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
