planned PMM activities, specifically focusing on the GPM suite of data products relevant for an applications-focused audience. We then provide case studies of how TRMM and GPM data have been applied across four thematic areas: tropical cyclone track forecasting, flood modeling, agricultural monitoring, and disease tracking. Table 1. Examples of applications’ thematic areas and topics where satellite precipitation estimates are being used for situational awareness and decision-making. More information

availability; 3) improving climate modeling and prediction capabilities; 4) improving weather forecasting and four-dimensional (4D) reanalysis; and 5) improving hydrological modeling and prediction. More details about these scientific objectives can be found in Hou et al. (2014) . GPM CO ’s well-calibrated instruments allow for scientifically advanced observations of precipitation in the midlatitudes, where a majority of Earth’s population lives. The middle panel in Fig. 1 shows the coverage of the GPM
