Precipitation: OVERVIEW

warn_icon.gif IMPORTANT MESSAGE Apr 16, 2015    Missing data issue in 3B42RT   

IR fill-ins ceased when CPC Global 4 km Merged IR data dropped out, starting 14 April 17:00 UTC, apparently due to processing issues at NOAA.  As a result, 3B41RT has no data and 3B42RT only has data in regions where microwave data are available.

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.

PDISC Guide for New Users

For users new to the PDISC, we offer a getting started guide.

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:
