This site includes research activities in the CSU Radar Meteorology Group in support of the Global Precipitation Measurement mission (GPM) Front Range Pilot Project, whose data collection phase spanned May-July 2004 along Colorado's Front Range.  This project is supported by NASA GPM Ground Validation and is a collaboration among CSU, NOAA's Environmental Technology Laboratory, NOAA's Aeronomy Laboratory, and the NASA Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission/Global Precipitation Mission Office.
