Last week, NASA held its annual meeting of the Precipitation Measurement Mission (PMM) Science Team at the University of Minnesota. The team consists of approximately 40 principal investigators and several other co-investigators. ESSIC has eight scientists involved in this capacity. The PMM scientists present the current status of their projects that are centered around the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission and its constellation of other satellites.
ESSIC scientists Jiun-Dar Chern, Takamichi Iguchi, Ralph Ferraro, Chris Kidd, Robert Adler, Rachael Kroodsma, Toshi Matsui, Lisa Milani, and Veljko Petkovic all attended the meeting. Rachael Kroodsma led the XCAL (Inter-calibration) working group, while Veljko Petkovic co-led the Land Surface working group. Chris Kidd led a side meeting on the CEOS Precipitation Virtual Constellation.
