From Satellites to your Backyard-GPM Precipitation Data

Did you know that NASA currently has over two dozen Earth-observing satellites that provide information on various environmental parameters, and precipitation is one of those?

Accessing this satellite data aids in our mosquito work because precipitation impacts mosquito populations.

This activity will show you how to access NASA precipitation data for your specific location.
