GPM "10 in 10" Webinar Series:

4 - Weather and Climate


NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is celebrating the ten-year anniversary! We invite all of you to join us as we share how this international constellation has improved life around the globe as well as enabled us to better understand our water cycle. Check out the dates for these free and informative webinars and put them on your calendar. Please share widely!

Have you ever wondered what the differences are between weather and climate? Thought about how we predict the weather and create climate models? Did you know that NASA has a huge array of resources ready to use to help you and others better understand our home planet? Join us on Thursday, May 9th at 8 PM (ET) for our free NASA-sponsored webinar- register and learn more here.

The International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) was established as a permanent Working Group of the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS) in 2001. The IPWG is co-sponsored by CGMS and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and focuses the scientific community on operational and research satellite based quantitative precipitation measurement issues and challenges.

Abstract Submission

  • Abstracts that deal with current operational and research precipitation estimation techniques, applications to climate and weather, data assimilation, validation, sensor calibration, and future satellite missions are encouraged.
  • The abstract should be in English, approximately one half of an A4 page and provided in electronic form.
  • Workshop website

Please submit your abstract here.

The deadline for the receipt of abstracts is 29 February 2024.
