Uncertainties in the rain retrieval algorithm for the GPM dual-frequency precipitation radar

Abstract

Rain echoes measured with the Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) onboard the GPM core satellite will provide us with some drop size information of precipitation that will help improve the rain rate estimation in comparison with the single-frequency algorithm used for the TRMM Precipitation Radar. To what extent we can improve the estimates depends on… (More)
