GPM Webinar: GPM-GLOBE Student Field Campaign Kick-Off

The GPM Mission

NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission is partnering with The GLOBE Program to hold a Student Precipitation Field Campaign to collect data from 1 February through mid-April 2015.

The GPM Mission, which launched on 27 February 2014, examines one important aspect of the water cycle – precipitation. The GLOBE field campaign is an opportunity for students to participate in ground validation for the GPM satellite, investigating the question: "How do ground-based observations compare to satellite rainfall estimates?" Students will also be able to compare their data with that of participating schools around the globe, networks of "official" rain gauges, as well as to long-term climatological data. During the Field Campaign, students and teachers will be able to participate in webinars and read blog posts by NASA scientists and engineers.

The GPM Webinar

This webinar, GPM-GLOBE Field Campaign Student Kick-Off, will take place on Monday, 2 February 2015. This webinar is specifically geared for students to learn general information about the campaign and the GPM mission.

This webinar will be hosted by the GPM Education and Communication Team, with special appearances by GPM scientists. Equivalent webinars with be held throughout the day on Monday, 2 February, at 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm EST (UTC-5). For registration information, click here.
