25th to 27th september 2013: 1st MTGV workshop
The 1st MTGV Workshop on Rainfall Products Validation and Hydrological Applications in the Tropics,  organized by the Megha-Tropiques Science team was hosted in the Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées in Toulouse, from 25th to 27th september. 5 keynote talks and 6 sessions covered various aspect of rainfall uncertainties : sources of uncertainties in instant retrievals, scale issues, error models for satellite and  ground 'truth'  estimates, hydrological applications and cross-validations. Participants from 15 countries  (Brasil, Burkina Faso, Cameroun, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India,  Italy, Ivory Coast, Niger,  Peru, U.S.A.,  U.K., Venezuela) representing the rainfall experts and users community were present and contributed to the rich interactive discussions.

29 may 2013: 2nd French-Japanese Workshop on the Scientific Utilization of Space-based Data
The scientific activities related to microwaves and rainfall developed within the framework of the Megha-Tropiques mission were presented at the Second French-Japanese Workshop on the Scientific Utilization of Space-based Earth Observation Data. The presentation took place at CNES Headquarters in Paris. Both the activities on quantitative precipitation estimation and quantitative precipitation forecast using microwave data were presented. It was a good opportunity to exchange ideas with our Japanese colleagues on current and future microwave radiometers and sounders. The talk "Quantitative precipitation estimates: entering the Megha-Tropiques and GPM era" given by Dr Philippe Chambon is available here .
