DISCUSSION: In light of the recent October coastal storm which impacted a good portion of the coastal Northeastern United States, there were legitimate interests in further studying this coastal low pressure system. In that light, the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) opted to conduct a study on this coastal storm by way of integrating the Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) satellite imager to create 3-dimensional cross-sections within this storm. One of the most impressive parts of this analysis was being able to see how the vertical structure of this coastal low pressure system differed depending on the part of the storm being considered.
