Let it Rain and Snow: Global Precipitation Measurement for Science and Society

March 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Challenger Learning Center,
200 South Duval Street
Tallahassee, FL 32301 United States

Gail Skofronick-Jackson is the NASA Project Scientist for the Global Precipitation Measurement satellite that allows for rain and snow estimates every 30 minutes. Knowing where, when and how precipitation falls is crucial for understanding the linkages between the Earth’s water and energy cycles and is vital for monitoring precipitation induced hazards such as floods, landslides, and hurricanes. Dr. Skofronick-Jackson has devoted more than 25 years to precipitation science with a focus on falling snow investigations.

Challenger Learning Center,
200 South Duval Street
Tallahassee, FL 32301 United States

Dr. Don Chambers is an Associate Professor of Marine Science at the University of South Florida who specializes in using satellite observations such as radar altimetry and satellite gravimetry to better understand ocean dynamics. His primary research focus is quantifying and understanding sea level variability, especially trying to separate natural climate variability from anthropogenic climate change. He studies all the dynamical processes that cause sea level change, including ocean circulation, ocean heat storage, ocean mass redistribution, and influx of fresh…
