[1] An algorithm for the retrieval of warm rain over oceans for CloudSat that uses ancillary information from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument is presented. The method builds upon the architecture of the standard CloudSat 2C-RAIN-PROFILE product. Several general enhancements of that architecture have been made, including the implementation of a fast two-stream multiple-scattering radar model and a detailed error characterization. The algorithm has also been… CONTINUE READING
