Example data from the TRMM project: TRMM-based precipitation estimates. A series of quasi-global, near-real-time, TRMM-based precipitation estimates is provided on a global 0.25 ° x0.25 ° grid over the latitude band 50 ° N-S within about seven hours of observation time.
Disasters affect many people in many countries. GRAIT-DM (Global Research on Applying Information Technology for Disaster Management) is an international collaborative effort. The multi-hazard research represented by LITMUS is an international collaboration with Japan, and a growing partnership with many countries affected by landslides such as Brazil, China, India, and Russia. Successful detection and prediction of multi-hazards will have significant human, social, and economic benefits with positive impact on the people around the world.
