Searchlight: Precipitation Advection Tracking Using Multiplatform Low-Earth-Orbiting Satellite Data

Abstract

This paper presents a new algorithm, Searchlight, capable of tracking precipitation advection through the complex spatiotemporal sampling pattern of multiplatform low-Earth-orbiting (LEO) passive and active microwave satellite data sets. The algorithm is based on the concept of “shining” a searchlight forward in time along proposed advection… (More)
