Worldview Image of the Week

Cyclone Freddy Continues over Mozambique and Malawi

Base image captured Mar 14, 2023, by the VIIRS instrument aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite, overlaid with IMERG Precipitation Rate.


True color corrected reflectance image of Tropical Cyclone Freddy continuing to bring rain to Mozambique and Malawi on March 13, 2023. This image was acquired by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite. Overlaid on the base image is the IMERG Precipitation Rate layer displaying rain rate and snow rate in millimeters per hour (mm/hr), with red/orange colors indicating areas of heaviest rain. It is estimated by the Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) (IMERG) algorithm. The IMERG algorithm uses passive-microwave data from the GPM constellation of satellites along with infrared data from geosynchronous satellites.
