During the webinar, Dr. Lynn McMurdie of the University of Washington, Project Manager and Senior Research Scientist for OLYMPEX, will discuss the specific scientific purposes of the project and why the Olympic Peninsula is a particularly significant locale for studying rain and snow, as well as detail the tools and equipment used for measurements during the campaign. Additionally, Kristen Weaver, an Education Specialist for the GPM mission, will outline educational resources available to help your students learn about the campaign and the scientific work being done.
