CYGNSS in hyperwall presentation at international symposium

Professor Chris Ruf used the NASA hyperwall to give a CYGNSS presentation at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium in Canada.

The hyperwall is a collection of high-resolution monitors that work well in presenting data and complex events. The symposium, which is in its 35th year, welcomed over 1,800 attendees from more than 70 countries.

CYGNSS stands for Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System. The CYGNSS mission will study the relationship between ocean surface properties, moist atmospheric thermodynamics, radiation and convective dynamics to determine how a tropical cyclone forms and whether or not it will strengthen, and if so by how much.
