CIRA

Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

About IPWG


The International Precipitation Working Group was initiated in 2000 after the 52nd session of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Executive Council recommended involving relevant science groups in a systematic manner to improve satellite system utilization. IPWG was then endorsed by Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS). IPWG provides a forum for operational and research users of satellite precipitation measurements to exchange information and fosters the development of better measurements and improvement of their utilization, the improvement of scientific understanding, and the development of international partnerships.

http://ipwg.isac.cnr.it

The meeting is currently planned in a hybrid form (with both in-person and virtual activities).

About IWSSM


The first International Workshop on Space-based Snowfall Measurement was held in 2005. The goal of IWSSM is to bring together researchers focusing on the measurement of snowfall from space using active and passive microwave sensors for the purpose of assessing the state of the science and measurement technology and to recommend future directions in research and technology development.

Event Objectives


  • To review the state of the knowledge in active areas of research and explore common approaches that can lead to faster advances by the community. Focus areas for this conference are high latitude precipitation; orographic precipitation; temporal and spatial trends in precipitation, as well as novel algorithms, validation, applications in hydrology, communication to the user community, and efforts to improve precipitation forecasts through better modeling and assimilation.
  • To recommend future directions to WMO/CGMS and coordinate with GEWEX on topics related to precipitation.
