Profiling Cloud Liquid Water by Combining Active and Passive Microwave Measurements with Cloud Model Statistics

Abstract

A method for combining ground-based passive microwave radiometer retrievals of integrated liquid water (LWP), radar reflectivity profiles (Z ), and statistics of a cloud model is proposed for deriving cloud liquid water profiles (LWC). A dynamic cloud model is used to determine Z–LWC relations and their errors as functions of height above cloud base. The… (More)
