A physically oriented inversion algorithm to retrieve precipitation from satellite-based passive microwave measurements named the Bayesian algorithm for microwave-based precipitation retrieval (BAMPR) is proposed. First, we illustrate the procedure that BAMPR follows to produce precipitation estimates from observed multichannel brightness temperatures. Retrieval products are the surface rain rates, columnar equivalent water contents, and hydrometeor content profiles, together with the… CONTINUE READING
