Michael King—EOS Senior Project Scientist

The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) spacecraft arrived safely at the Tanegashima Space Center (TnSC), Japan, on August 23. In addition to the Precipitation Radar (PR), TRMM Microwave Imager (TMI), and Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS), TRMM carries the first two sensors developed as part of the EOS program: CERES (Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System) and LIS (Lightning Imaging Sensor). TRMM is scheduled for launch in mid-November, and will fly in a mid-inclination (35°) precessing orbit at an altitude of 350 km.

The Office of Mission to Planet Earth has now finalized the selection of proposals arising from the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) for supplementary activities to support the validation of measurements by EOS satellite sensors in the AM-1 and SAGE III time frame, released March 13. This NRA also solicited proposals for investigations as part of NASA's Global Data Integration and Validation Program, an MTPE Research and Analysis Program. NASA received 270 proposals in response to this announcement, 64 of which were accepted. Details of the selection can be found...
