Global monitoring of the precipitation requires the full exploitation of all overpasses of present and future satellites carrying cross-track and conically scanning passive microwave (PMW) radiometers. Therefore, it is essential to achieve consistency and accuracy of passive microwave precipitation retrievals from the different sensors orbiting around the globe. Within the EUMETSAT H-SAF program (Satellite Application Facility on Support to Operational Hydrology and Water Management, http… Expand

Transitioning From CRD to CDRD in Bayesian Retrieval of Rainfall From Satellite Passive Microwave Measurements: Part 2. Overcoming Database Profile Selection Ambiguity by Consideration of Meteorological Control on Microphysics
TLDR
A regional/mesoscale model is applied in cloud resolving model (CRM) mode, to produce a large set of numerical simulations of precipitating storms and extended precipitating systems, and a proof that the underlying CDRD theory is valid is found by combining subdivisions of the invoked meteorological parameter ranges of values.

Global Millimeter-Wave Precipitation Retrievals Trained With a Cloud-Resolving Numerical Weather Prediction Model, Part I: Retrieval Design
TLDR
It is demonstrated that multiple scattering in high microwave albedo clouds may help explain the observed consistency for a global set of 122 storms between AMSU-observed 50-191-GHz brightness temperature distributions and corresponding distributions predicted using a cloud-resolving mesoscale NWP model (MM5) and a two-stream radiative transfer model that models icy hydrometeors as spheres with frequency-dependent densities.
