This true color corrected reflectance image shows an overlay of precipitation rate in Central America, with remnants from Hurricane Julia, taken from NASA's Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) (IMERG) algorithm. The IMERG Precipitation Rate layer displays rain rate and snow rate in millimeters per hour (mm/hr). It is estimated by the IMERG algorithm. The IMERG algorithm uses passive-microwave data from the GPM constellation of satellites and also infrared data from geosynchronous satellites.
