Global Precipitation Measurement is a joint mission between JAXA and NASA as well as other international agencies to frequently (every 3 hours) measure the Earth’s atmospheric moisture. It is part of NASA’s Earth Systematic Missions program and is planned to cover nearly the complete Earth. The project office is overseen by NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center and will provide global rain maps to assist researchers in studying global climate data. The mission consists of a multiple spacecraft.
