NASA's Integrated Precipitation and Hydrology Experiment (IPHEx)
When most people hear about NASA's science projects, they mostly think about astronauts in space. But NASA research also focuses on understanding our earth. A field experiment in the Appalachian Mountains this summer will hopefully answer questions about rain, hail, and fog formation and prediction in mountain regions. One of the major goals of the project is to develop methods for better observations of precipitation from satellites. Measurements from the ground will be used to validate measurements from the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite. You can read more about the field campaign here.
