[ The floods caused by heavy rainfall in Germany and Belgium
-increase of heavy rainfall under climate change- ]

September 28, 2021

In July 2021, intermittent heavy rainfall occurred elsewhere across Europe, causing flooding and enormous damage particularly in Germany and Belgium.
From the perspective of providing information on precipitation condition, JAXA/EORC conducted the analysis using data from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) core observatory, the Global Satellite Mapping of Precipitation (GSMaP), etc., which observe condition of rain from space.
