5th International GPM Ground Validation Workshop 2012
The Fifth GPM International GV Workshop is being hosted by Environment Canada in coordination with NASA's Precipitation Measurement Missions Science Program. The workshop was held 10-12 July 2012 in Toronto, Canada.
The anticipated outcomes of the workshop included: a) an improved understanding of high-latitude GV priorities and practices; b) assessment, definition, and prioritization of remaining key algorithm issues in the tropics; c) better understanding of the quality and utility of current satellite products, especially in the middle and high latitudes; d) increased coordination of international field and measurement initiatives contributing to GPM GV objectives; and e) a consensus on recommended approaches to making liquid and frozen PSD measurements and an improved understanding of how such information can be incorporated into GPM retrieval algorithms.
