The 7th Precipitation Measuring Mission (PMM) Science Research Announcement
In this seventh Precipitation Measuring Mission (PMM) Science Research Announcement (RA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) announces the opportunity for researches, relating to the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission and the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite.
To meet the mission objectives of TRMM and GPM, which are to understand and predict global water cycle variation and contribute to operational use, this RA seeks to conduct researches necessary to generate global, highly-accurate, uniform and long-term stable precipitation products (i.e., "Algorithm Development" and "Validation"), and researches related to climate and water cycle variation and development of new research products using techniques such as models and/or data assimilation (i.e., "Application Research").
Proposals should submit no later than October 15, 2012.
RA details and forms for proposals can be downloaded from the following:
