Ice-phase Precipitation Retrievals over Land Using Combined Radar / Radiometer Satellite Observations

Abstract

Passive microwave (PMW) measurements of ice-phase precipitation, such as snowfall and graupel, provide a physically direct basis for inferring the integrated amount of precipitation within a given field-of-view (FOV), assuming that other sources of noise can be adequately accounted for. However, the vertical distribution of precipitation within the FOV is… (More)
