TEMPEST-D / RaInCube Sees Typhoon Trami

TEMPEST-D and RaInCube are part of the next generation of small satellites called cubesats. Together these tiny satellites can generate some big results. This data visualization shows how TEMPEST-D and RainCube satellite data can be used in conjunction with each other to provide both horizontal cross-sections as well as a vertical slice through significant weather events such as Typhoon Trami.
