Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) has 16 spectral bands, including two visible channels, four near-infrared channels and ten infrared channels. It is nearly identical to the imagers on Himawari 8 and Himawari 9.
GPM/DPR/Ku also referred to as: Volumetric Precipitation data
Observed Data - JAXA - 7/25/2020 15:41-16:11Z
Data provided by the joint NASA/JAXA GPM mission.
GPM/GMI/Surface Precipitation also referred to as: Rain Rates
