This paper evaluates the ability of the United States National Polar Orbiting Environmental Sensor System (NPOESS) Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) to retrieve surface precipitation rates (mm/h); water path estimates for rain, snow, and graupel (mm); and peak vertical wind (convective strength, m/s). Simulated retrieval accuracies for ATMS were compared to those for its predecessor, AMSU. These retrieval algorithms employ neural networks trained using atmospheric parameters and… Expand
