Event information

Join us on Wednesday, April 13, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm Eastern time to learn about watersheds and the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission. Register today!

What is a watershed? Why are watersheds important? What are signs of a healthy watershed? Why are some watersheds or water reservoirs losing their water? Water management for watershed regions, how do NASA satellites help monitor watershed regions, what are hands on investigations students can conduct to monitor their watershed areas are topics that will be covered during 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.
