Performance and application of a multi-wavelength , ground-based microwave radiometer in intense convective weather

  author={P. W. Chan},
Thermodynamic and dynamic quantities, such as the K-index and GUSTEX (a wind gust estimate), are commonly used in the nowcasting of intense convective weather. In the past, they were derived from conventional upper-air ascent measurements, which were normally only available twice a day. In the tropics, the thermodynamic property of the troposphere could change rapidly in rain episodes and the conventional upper-air ascent data alone are not sufficient for nowcasting purposes.
