JAXA Global Rainfall Watch

JAXA Global Rainfall Watch

We offer hourly global rainfall maps in near real time (about four hours after observation) using the combined MW-IR algorithm with TRMM TMI, Aqua AMSR-E, DMSP SSM/I and GEO IR data. Background cloud images are produced from IR data observed by JMA's MTSAT satellite, NOAA's GOES satellites and EUMETSAT's Meteosat satellites (see NOTICE), and provided through JWA.
