1. Introduction In the companion paper ( Jones et al. 1998 ) a method was described to assimilate satellite-derived infrared heating rates into a mesoscale atmospheric model to retrieve model soil moisture. The method includes explicit components for bare soil, shaded soil, vegetation, and water surfaces. One-dimensional tests of the method were used as pedagogical examples to explain the method and to better understand the important physical mechanisms related to the method

participants can easily implement the same radiative formula. Second, LESs usually last 6 h or less, a period too short to heat or cool clear air significantly, thereby vitiating the advantage of accurate multiband radiative calculations for gaseous absorption. Third, an analytic longwave formula is computationally inexpensive. This is advantageous because considerable expense is associated with both LES and numerical radiation calculations. LES is expensive because it requires a small grid size (often

difference between the channel 4 (10.7 μ m) infrared brightness temperature ( T 10.7 ) and the channel 5 (12.0 μ m) split-window brightness temperature ( T 12.0 ) was used to enhance the contrast between the distrails and the surrounding cloud. The distrails tended to lower the brightness temperature difference between these channels as the fall streak particles in the center of the distrail are larger than the particles in the surrounding cloud layer [see Minnis et al. (1998) for plots of T 10
