ESSIC hosted the second annual NOAA User Workshop on the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Missions this year from November 29 to December 1, with about 60 participants from the government, private sectors, or academia.
The three day meeting, co-sponsored by NESDIS/STAR and NWS/OHD, followed up on last year’s highly successful workshop and focused on user applications of GPM-era data and products.
The Global Precipitations Measurement Mission is a joint mission with JAXA, the Japanese equivalent to NASA, and looks at global precipitation, including rain and snow. The concept builds off of the ongoing Tropical Rainfall Measurement (TRM) Mission, which began in 1997 and measured precipitation in tropical regions.
