Join us on Thursday, March 3, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm Eastern time to learn about the water cycle and the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission. Register today!

What is water? Where did Earth’s water come from? Water cycle basics, water management, freshwater versus salt water usage to meet our needs, freshwater availability, how does NASA help us better understand the water cycle are topics that will presented at this seminar.

The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) is an international satellite mission (NASA and JAXA) to provide next-generation observations of rain and snow. The GPM mission will help advance our understanding of Earth's water and energy cycles, improve the forecasting of extreme events that cause natural disasters, and extend current capabilities of using satellite precipitation information to directly benefit society.
