This is the first of a four-part series on the GLOBE Program and Satellite Partnerships.  There are four opportunities to take part in GLOBE Campaigns related to NASA Missions: CloudSat; CALIPSO; Global Precipitation Measurement Mission; and the Soil Moisture Active Passive Mission.  In today's podcast, we will look at the CloudSat mission.  

Since 2006, CloudSat has flown the first satellite-based millimeter-wavelength cloud radar - a radar that is more than 1000 times more sensitive than existing weather radars.
