IMERG Early Run Example January 24th, 2020

International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Applications Training

This three-part webinar series hosted by the International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Applications Program will focus on the use of GPM data products for applications. Specifically, the participant will learn more about how to access GPM data and will be provided demonstrations on precipitation data access and analysis using NASA's Giovanni tool and Google Earth Engine.

To receive a certificate of completion, the participant will need to attend all three sessions of this training program.

Topics Covered:

  • Review the TRMM / GPM Missions
  • Become familiar with GPM data access and products and GPM applications
  • Understand IMERG and the strengths and caveats of the long-term IMERG data record for applications
  • Find previous training webinars related to GPM precipitation
  • Learn to access, analyze, and visualize IMERG precipitation data using NASA Giovanni tools and Google Earth Engine
