NASA and Colorado State University Volunteer Network Invite Public to 
Free Webinar on Floods

 

The public is invited to participate in a free webinar about a NASA field 
campaign that uses rain measurements to improve flood forecasting. The 
webinar will be hosted by NASA and the Community, Collaborative Rain, 
Hail, and Snow Network, known as CoCoRaHS, run by Colorado State 
University, Fort Collins.



The webinar will be held on June 11 at 7 p.m. EDT and will feature the 
Iowa Flood Studies field campaign, a partnership between NASA's Global 
Precipitation Measurement mission and the Iowa Flood Center at the 
University of Iowa, Iowa City. 



"We're trying to figure out how well our satellites estimate rainfall," said 
Walt Petersen, GPM ground validation scientist at NASA's Wallops Flight 
Facility in Virginia. "This study is unique in that it takes space-borne 
observations, it takes ground-based observations, and it brings those 
things into a modeling framework that should further our ability to predict 
flooding."



Flooding is a major hazard worldwide that affects millions of people and 
can cause billions of dollars in damage. During the Iowa Flood Studies' six-
week field campaign, scientists measure rainfall from rain gauges and 
radar set up across eastern Iowa to improve satellite measurements of 
precipitation from space and to improve the forecast models they use to 
predict floods. 



Walt Petersen, GPM science team lead for the field campaign, and Steve 
Nesbitt of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will talk about 
the importance and the day-to-day operations of these field campaigns. 
They will discuss the campaign's science results, which will help 
researchers better understand Earth's water cycle, weather and climate, 
meteorology and the new capabilities of using satellite technology to 
investigate Earth's hydrological systems. In addition, webinar participants 
will discuss precipitation-related education and citizen science efforts.



CoCoRaHS is a citizen-scientist network with more than 18,000 volunteers 
nationwide that encourages volunteers of all ages to record and monitor 
precipitation using accurate, low-cost rain gauges. The organization is 
working with the GPM mission, a new satellite mission to measure 
precipitation from space every three hours that will help advance the 
understanding of Earth's water and energy cycles. A partnership between 
NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, the GPM Core satellite 
is scheduled to launch in early 2014.
