It is suggested that precipitation intensity is higher in higher altitude as compared to lower altitudes; So PMP values are higher in high elevation areas as compared to lower elevations areas.
The system receives observational data continually, 24 x 7, from the GPM Core Observatory and supporting satellites via NASA's Precipitation Processing System, generates global precipitation data, including a 3D distribution of precipitation intensity, and distributes that data to organizations, including NASA, the Japan Meteorological Agency, ICHARM, and the IDI.
