GPM mission. NOAA’s resources could be directed at many activities that will help in this regard (Table 5.1), and the present constellation of passive microwave sensors in conjunction with TRMM’s unique suite of sensors provides an ideal source of global, intercalibrated data with which to refine operational applications in preparation for future precipitation-measuring missions.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
