H058:
Global Precipitation Measurement, Validation, and Applications





Session ID#: 24334

Session Description:
Global precipitation measurements are necessary for monitoring earth’s water resources and the global hydrologic cycle, understanding climate variability, and improving weather prediction. In early 2014 the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission “Core” satellite was launched by NASA and JAXA as a central platform in the GPM international satellite constellation.  The GPM Core serves as on orbit calibration source and precipitation remote sensing laboratory to support radiometer measurements made by the larger GPM constellation.  Collectively, the GPM mission provides the next-generation of unified global precipitation products with accuracies and data latencies essential for research and integrated hydrometeorological applications, along with decades of precipitation measurements. This session invites contributions in ALL areas of precipitation science including retrieval algorithms, ground validation, inter-sensor calibration and data fusion, and data utilization in hydrologic, weather, climate, and societal applications.  Within the broader session, specific contributions are also solicited associated with the GPM Olympic Mountains Experiment (OLYMPEX).
