NASA GPM Release New Version of IMERG – Offer Special GLOBE Activity (Along with Other Resources) Week of 14 October; Online Training 15 October
NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPM) -- an international collaboration that measures global precipitation from space – has just released a new data product: V06 IMERG (Integrated Multi-satellite Retrievals for GPM), which allows anyone to access the past two decades of precipitation data observations from space.
The new data product, V06 IMERG, brings together retrospectively processed Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM) and GPM data to make a near-global precipitation data set from 2000 to the present.
To highlight the release of this latest version of IMERG, the GPM Mission communications team is providing a range of resources to the public to explain why this data is so important to all of us across the globe. These resources will include several short videos, news stories, and social media posts.

This training is for professionals interested in using this state-of-the-art precipitation data product for applications in the water resources, disasters, agriculture, energy, and health sectors.
