Dr. Kirschbaum discusses her role with GPM, how she became a scientist, and how remotely sensed satellite data can be used to study and evaluate natural hazards such as landslides.
Profile of Steve Nesbitt, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois and a mission scientist on GPM ground validation field campaigns. Nesbitt uses the data collected to improve the representation of cloud microphysical processes using radars, aircraft probes, and surface instrumentation in satellite precipitation algorithms to improve global precipitation estimates.
