Precipitation retrievals exploiting the available passive microwave (PMW) observations by cross-track and conically scanning satellite-borne radiometers in the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission era are used to monitor and characterize heavy precipitation events that occurred during the Fall 2014 in Italy. Different physically based PMW… CONTINUE READING
