Science and Mechanics of Falling Snow

March 20, 2012

For six weeks in Ontario, Canada, scientists and engineers lead a field campaign to study the science and mechanics of falling snow. The datasets retrieved will be used to generate algorithms which translate what the GPM Core satellite “sees” into precipitation rates, including that of falling snow.  credit:  NASA
