2013 PMM Science Team Meeting

The NASA Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) Science Team for the TRMM and GPM missions met on March 18-21, 2013 in Annapolis, MD.  This meeting included oral, poster, and evening working group sessions covering mission/program status, algorithm development activities, international partner reports, science activities, field campaign results, and other science team business.  More than 175 scientists from 11 countries participated.  The TRMM satellite is now in its 16th year of on-orbit operation and the GPM Core Observatory is scheduled to launch in early 2014.

This excerpt from the NASA Earth Observer publication provides and in-depth summary of the Midlatitude Continental Convective Clouds Experiment (MC3E), which took place from April 22nd - June 6th 2011 in central Oklahoma. The overarching goals of the field effort were to provide a complete three-dimensional characterization of precipitation microphysics in the context of improving the reliability of GPM precipitation retrievals over land, and to advance understanding of the primary physical components that form the basis for models that simulate convection and clouds.
