The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is an international partnership co-led by NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) that will provide next-generation global observations of precipitation from space.
GPM will study global rain, snow and ice to better understand our climate, weather, and hydro-meteorological processes.
