GPM IMERG Adds Up Rainfall from Super Typhoon Yutu
#TyphoonYutu recently passed over the Northern Mariana Islands, bringing damaging heavy winds and flooding. This animation uses data from GPM IMERG to show the estimated accumulated precipitation for the region from 10/21/18 - 10/25/18 pic.twitter.com/luJu8KabT2— NASA Precipitation (@NASARain) October 25, 2018
This rainfall accumulation analysis was derived from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) IMERG multi-satellite dataset. This analysis shows Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) rainfall accumulation estimates along Yutu’s track from October 21- 25, 2018 as it hit the Northern Mariana Islands. IMERG rainfall accumulation data indicated that Yutu frequently produced rainfall totals greater than 10 inches along it's current track.
