STAR Satellite Rainfall Estimates

Hydro-Estimator - World Regions
Automatic Satellite-Derived Precipitation Estimates

This page provides 24-hour rainfall rate estimates for areas covered by the Meteosat-10, Meteosat-7, and MTSAT-2 satellites. Rain rates were estimated from cloud-top temperatures and PHP model data using algorithms which, to date, have only been calibrated over the continental United States. The first eight characters of each file name shows the year, month, day, and time for the observation; estimated rainfall is for the 24 hours prior to that time. No archive for this data currently exists, and we do not have data prior to what is on this page.
