Precipitation Data

China's recently launched FY-3G satellite aims to provide detailed 3D data on rainfall and other precipitation types worldwide, enhancing weather forecasting and climate studies. The high-precision observation data will be made freely available.

New satellite capable of measuring Earth precipitation from space
Measuring the amount of precipitation that falls in a specific location is simple if that location has a device designed to accurately record and transmit precipitation data. In contrast, measuring the amount and type of precipitation that falls to Earth in every location is logistically quite difficult. Importantly, this information could provide a wealth of data for characterizing and predicting Earth’s water, energy and biogeochemical cycles.

Forests and Cloud Formation

A new research study casts fresh insights into forests' role in affecting the climate and water cycle, underscoring how current climate models do not fully account for forests' impact, especially in terms of their contribution to cloud formation.
