Strong May Storms

A tornado outbreak occurred in the Midwestern and Eastern U.S. in May 2019. Regional subsets of GPM radar precipitation data showed extreme rainfall accompanying the tornadoes reported on the dates shown. Red indicates rain rates greater than 25 millimeters (~1 inch) per hour.

New Subsetter for Precipitation Data

Level 2 Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) data swaths from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, shown here, can now be subset with the GES DISC Level 2 subsetter. The Level 2 subsetter also works with data variables from several other satellite remote-sensing missions.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
