Temperature and water vapour soundings from satellites have been available for more than 20 years. Because of the global nature of these data, satellite soundings were expected to improve significantly global numerical weather prediction (NWP). Indeed, experiments with the satellite soundings provided during the Global Weather Experiment (GWE) in 1979 revealed the positive impact of these data on extended-range forecasts, particularly in the southern hemisphere. Unfortunately, since the GWE… CONTINUE READING
