Parametric optimal estimation retrieval of the non-precipitating parameters over the global oceans, A
There are a multitude of spacebome microwave sensors in orbit, including the TRMM Microwave Imager (TMI), the Special Sensor Microwave/lmager (SSM/I) onboard the DMSP satellites, the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E), SSMIS, WINDSAT, and others. Future missions, such as the planned Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission, will incorporate additional spacebome microwave sensors. The need for consistent geophysical parameter retrievals among an ever-increasing number of microwave sensors requires the development of a physical retrieval scheme independent ...
