GHRC and the NASA GPM GV program

GPM-GV Field Campaigns

The NASA Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPMGround Validation (GV) program, as a member of the broader NASA Precipitation Measurement Mission, is providing ground and airborne precipitation datasets supporting physical validation of satellite-based precipitation retrieval algorithms.

Field research campaigns are essential for observing and measuring actual Earth system phenomena and validating computer models that simulate Earth systems. Ultimately, field data help improve the nation's ability to predict climate change and its impacts. The collaborative effort between Earth Scientists at the Global Hydrometeorology and Resource Center (GHRC) and IT researchers has resulted in unique solutions to the collection, archive, management and dissemination of science data.
