NOAA's Role in Space-Based Global Precipitation Estimation and gton, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: / The transition of the GPM mission from a research program to an operational system will have to be designed to ensure continued acquisition and application of high-quality, intercalibrated global satellite-based precipitation observations in support of NOAA's mission-oriented forecasting operations and climate services.

Currently, the only practical way to achieve global precipitation observation is space-based meteorological satellites (Hong et al. ; Tang et al. Satellite-based precipitation. Abstract. Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) is an international satellite mission that uses measurements from an advanced radar/radiometer system on a Core Observatory as reference standards to unify and advance precipitation estimates through a constellation of research and operational microwave by: 3.

Precipitation products are critical for the development of applications that address a variety of scientific and societal needs. It is difficult to discuss precipitation applications without proper consideration of the spatial and temporal scales of individual products, as Cited by: Meeting Objectives.

This three-day meeting, co-sponsored by NESDIS, NWS, and OAR, will follow up on the highly successful previous two workshops -- August and November with a focus on the development, functionality, and priorities of a new NOAA GPM Proving Ground.

The meeting objectives and anticipated outcomes for each topic are as follows. CMORPH overestimated somewhere between 17% and 65% of total precipitation in the warm season and underestimated ~13%–21% of total precipitation in the cold season (except for Montana).

However, its CIs were ~31%–33% smaller in the warm season than in the cold season. PERSIANN’s seasonal variation depends on the region under by: 3.

Precipitation is a critical input for hydrologic simulation and prediction, and is widely used for agriculture, water resources management, and prediction of. Highlights We compared the three satellite precipitation products with dense rain gauge observations.

We evaluated the hydrological utility of three satellite precipitation products. It is needed for specific parameter calibrations for the real-time satellite inputs.

Satellite streamflow simulations were merged by the Bayesian model averaging method. The study will be a Cited by: 1. Introduction. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM), which is a mission to be launched by the international community byenvisions a large constellation of Passive Microwave (PM) sensors to provide global rainfall products at scales ranging from 3 to 6 h, and spatial resolution of km 2 (Smith, ; Bidwell et al., ; Flaming, ; Yuter et al., ).Cited by: Application areas include safety, shipping, fisheries, management of marine resources, coastal ecosystems and marine pollution, and off-shore industry.

A recent European study estimated that if all economic activities that depend on the sea are counted, then the European Union's 'blue' economy represents million jobs and a gross added value. Fall Meeting 7 – 11 December Fall Meeting is the largest international Earth and space science meeting in the world.

After last year's Centennial celebration, we return to the Moscone Center in San Francisco to look towards AGU's next years of.

An important goal of the Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR), aboard the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) core satellite, is to derive rain rate and snowfall rate by estimating parameters of the raindrop size distribution (DSD) and the snow particle size distribution (PSD).
