Comparison of microwave radiometer brightness temperature over a hot reference area


Nadir-looking microwave radiometers are flown on different altimeter missions to correct the altimeter range for water vapor and cloud liquid water path delay in the troposphere. Actually four sensors, TOPEX, JASON-1, ERS2, and ENVISAT micro-wave radiometers (MWR) provide continuous measurements and the aim of this paper is to compare their measured… (More)
