Print resolution still of Typhoon Phanfone being scanned through the center of the DPR data showing the inner volumetric rain rates. Note: Tokyo is immediately to the left of the scan.
On September 26, the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite flew over an extra-tropical cyclone whose center was approaching Norway. The Norwegian weather service reported that this storm brought gale-force winds to parts of Norway's coast.
One of the first storms observed by the NASA/JAXA GPM Core Observatory on March 17, 2014, in the eastern United States revealed a full range of precipitation, from rain to snow.
HIWRAP was developed by Goddard’s High Altitude Radar Group. The team includes (left to right): Lihua Li, Gerry McIntire, Michael Coon, Matthew McLinden, Gerry Heymsfield and Martin Perrine.
This image shows severe thunderstorms over South Carolina as observed from NASA’s ER-2 aircraft flying at 65,000 feet during the Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment recently.
During the field campaign, NASA's ER-2 research aircraft flew out of Robins Air Force Base in Georgia.

On May 29, GPM Deputy Project Manager Candace Carlisle (left) handed over the "key" to the GPM Core Observatory to GPM Mission Director James Pawloski (center, blue shirt).
In the Mission Operations Center on May 16, 2014, GPM's NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency project managers deliver the completed Daruma doll to the members of the Flight Operations team that completed the spacecraft's check-out.
On May 16, 2014, GPM project managers Art Azarbarzin (left, NASA) and Masahiro Kojima (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) color in the second eye of a Daruma doll, a Japanese tradition for reaching goals.
Set up on a ranch in Rutherford County, N.C., NASA's Dual-frequency, Dual-polarization, Doppler Radar (D3R) is one of several ground radars measuring rain as it falls from clouds. It has the same two frequencies as are on the GPM Core Observatory Satellit
Rain gauges and other rain monitoring equipment are set up throughout the Smoky Mountains (part of the Appalachians) to capture rainfall for the GPM ground validation taking place in North Carolina May 1 to June 15, 2014.
The GMI instrument has 13 channels, each sensitive to different types of precipitation.
