[1] The sensitivity of microwave brightness temperatures at the frequencies between 89 and 190 GHz to surface emissivities and hydrometeors in a tropical deep convective cloud system is investigated by simulations, using the Goddard Cumulus Ensemble model data of a simulated oceanic tropical squall line as input for a radiative transfer model. It is found that only the window channel at 89 GHz has an apparent dependence on the surface emissivity. The three water vapor channels around 183 GHz (i… CONTINUE READING
