GPM and Cloudsat Researchers Meet in Helsinki to Discuss LPVEx Data

GPM and CloudSat ground validation researchers are currently meeting at the University of Helsinki to discuss  strategies for analyzing airborne and ground-based datasets from the Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) field campaign. This data analysis will help improve satellite-based precipitation retrievals in high latitude light rain and snowfall events.

Light Precipitation Validation Experiment (LPVEx) Science Plan

The Light Precipitation Evaluation Experiment (LPVEx) planned for the Gulf of Finland in September and October, 2010 will seek to address this shortcoming by collecting microphysical properties, associated remote sensing observations, and coordinated model simulations of high latitude precipitation systems to drive the evaluation and development of precipitation algorithms for current and future satellite platforms.
