A precipitation radar system from NASA has been stationed in Iowa.
For more than a month, researchers will collect data from a radar site in Traer.
The radar can measure and collect precipitation data from a 100-mile radius.
Researchers said they chose Iowa because it rains and floods, and they'd like to study patterns that can be applied across the globe.
"The long-term benefit for the community will be hopefully better predicting capabilities for the community to know about a flood is about to occur," said Pitor Domaszczynski, a NASA researcher.
The radar will collect data from Traer through June 15.
It will also make its way to North Carolina and Washington, where it will collect similar data to be used across the world.
