The Global Precipitation Measuring Mission requires the ability to compare the calibrations of similar, but not identical, orbiting microwave radiometers. A fitting algorithm has been developed which adjusts a set of geophysical parameters to match the radiances of a source sensor. The adjusted parameters are then used to compute the radiances for a target sensor. For comparison purposes, a simple (weather forecast) analysis-based algorithm has also been implemented. The algorithms have been… CONTINUE READING
