The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) was a joint space mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical term refers to both the mission itself and the satellite that the mission used to collect data.

TRMM was part of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth, a long-term, coordinated research effort to study the Earth as Operator: JAXA / NASA.

Earth sensor assembly for the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Observatory: final report. [Steven S Prince; James M Hoover; United. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

It was designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall and the associated release of energy that helps to power the global atmospheric circulation, shaping both weather and climate around the globe. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), is the first mission dedicated to measuring tropical and subtropical rainfall through microwave and visible infrared Author: Steve Graham.

Tropical rainfall affects the lives and economies of a majority of the Earth's population. Tropical rain systems, such as hurri-canes, typhoons, and monsoons, are crucial to sustaining the livelihoods of those living in the tropics.

Excess rainfall can cause floods and great property and crop damage, whereasFile Size: KB.

On the morning of SeptemNASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite captured a 3-D look inside Hurricane Ivan, still a Category 4 storm.

This unique look at Ivan shows the structure of rainfall inside the storm where red represents precipitation of 2 or more inches per hour. The importance of quantitative knowledge of tropical rainfall, its associated latent heating and variability is summarized in the context of climate change.

Since the tropics are mainly covered with oceans, with some deserts and jungles, the monthly precipitation is not known within a factor of two.

Hence the only way to measure it adequately for climate and general circulation models is from Cited by: To summarize, The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) is a joint U.S.-Japan satellite mission to monitor tropical and subtropical precipitation and to estimate its associated latent heating.

NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) was Author: Ellen Gray. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is an international partnership co-led by NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The mission centers on the deployment of the GPM Core Observatory and consists of a network, or constellation, of additional satellites that together will provide next-generation global.

Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) is a joint mission between JAXA and NASA as well as other international space agencies to make frequent (every 2–3 hours) observations of Earth's is part of NASA's Earth Systematic Missions program and works with a satellite constellation to provide full global coverage.

The project provides global precipitation maps to assist Operator: JAXA / NASA. The data come in part from measurements taken by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission ( TRMM) satellite. Areas of dark brown over Indonesia and Southeast Asia show that these regions received much less rain than normal during Novemberwhile blue over East Africa reveals higher-than-average rainfall totals.

In when the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission, or TRMM, was launched, its mission was scheduled to last just a few years. Now, 17 years later, the TRMM mission has come to an end. NASA and.
