TLDR
This paper addresses the following: 1) millimeter-wave scattering by icy hydrometeors and 2) the consistency between histograms of millimeterwave atmospheric radiances observed by satellite instruments [Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A/B (AMSU) and those predicted by a mesoscale numerical weather prediction model (MM5) in combination with a two-stream radiative transfer model (TBSCAT).

TLDR
This paper evaluates the ability of the United States National Polar Orbiting Environmental Sensor System (NPOESS) Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder to retrieve surface precipitation rates (mm/h); water path estimates for rain, snow, and graupel (mm); and peak vertical wind (convective strength, m/s). Expand
Hyperspectral Microwave Atmospheric Sounding
TLDR
We introduce a new hyperspectral microwave remote sensing modality for atmospheric sounding, driven by recent advances in microwave device technology that now permit receiver arrays that can multiplex multiple broad frequency bands into more than 100 spectral channels, thus improving both the vertical and horizontal resolutions of the retrieved atmospheric profile.

TLDR
This paper evaluates the performance of the global precipitation rate retrieval algorithm for the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) that was described in Part I of this paper. Expand
Millimeter-Wave Precipitation Retrievals and Observed-versus-Simulated Radiance Distributions: Sensitivity to Assumptions
Abstract Brightness temperature histograms observed at 50–191 GHz by the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) on operational NOAA satellites are shown to be consistent with predictions made usingExpand
