This data visualization starts by looking at Hurricane Douglas via IMERG precipitation measurements over cloud cover as Douglas approaches the Hawaiian islands on July 25, 2020. GPM then flies over to collect more detailed measurements of the Hurricane's surface precipitation and internal structure via it's GMI and DPR instruments respectively.
GPM captured Hurricane Douglas at 15:46 UTC (5:46 am HST) on July 25th, 2020 on it's approach to the Hawaiian Islands. Douglas was the first hurricane of the 2020 Eastern Pacific Hurricane season. At this stage Hurricane Douglas was a category 2 hurricane with sustained wind speeds of up to 105 miles per hours (169 kph).
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.
