NASA/NSTA Webinar — Global Precipitation Measurement Mission: Water Cycle
Join the National Science Teachers Association for a free interactive webinar to learn about the water cycle and NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement, or GPM, mission. The 90-minute session will take place on March 3, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. EST.
What is water? Where did Earth’s water come from? Topics presented at this webinar will include water cycle basics, water management, and freshwater availability. A NASA scientist will give background science information about water and how NASA helps us better understand the water cycle.
GPM is an international satellite mission managed by NASA and JAXA (the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) that will provide next-generation observations of rain and snow. The GPM mission will help us learn more about 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.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation and 100 Learning Center activity points for attending and completing the post-program evaluation. An archive and presentation slides will be available at the end of the program.
