New NASA Record Showcases Two Decades Of Rain And Snow Around The Globe Chat with NASA Scientists October 17 To Find Out How This Record Applies To Your Region
When it rains, it pours data. What falls from the sky lands in every aspect of our lives on the ground, from our food supplies to our safety and health. By studying rain and snow, NASA can better understand how to model natural disasters, forecast crop yields and prevent water-borne diseases — including cholera, malaria and Zika virus.
Now NASA has remastered the past by creating the most complete NASA record to date of rainfall patterns all over the world. With nearly 20 years of data, this record looks back for key clues to uncovering the future of our planet.
Chat with NASA scientists from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, October 17 to find out more about the stories that rain and snow can tell us and how this two decade record applies to your region.
