GPM Senses East Coast Snow Storm on March 17th, 2014

The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission is a joint satellite mission between NASA and JAXA. GPM has the capability of differentiating between liquid and frozen precipitation. In this visualization we see a large east coast snow storm through the eyes of GPM.
