The NASA Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) held its first Applications Workshop on November 12-13th, 2013 at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland. The goal of the two-day event was to broaden the discussion on a range of current and future applications of satellite data to science and societal applications and provide feedback to the TRMM and GPM teams.
ESSIC Senior Research Scientist Bob Adler is a principal investigator of both the GPM and TRMM missions. Associate Research Scientist Chris Kidd and Visiting Associate Research Scientist Ralph Ferraro are principal investigators of the GPM Mission.
The Earth System Sciences Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) was acknowledged on the Workshop website for their workshop organization and logistical support.
