blizzard storm with the mesoscale MM5 model and a delta-Eddington-type radiative transfer (RT) model to produce a storm-scale database for snowfall retrieval using AMSU-B observations. Noh et al. (2009) used a large number of snowfall profiles from airborne, surface, and satellite radars, as well as an atmospheric RT model ( Liu 1998 ) to generate a regional database for snowfall retrievals using the AMSU-B data. The study used the NESDIS Microwave Land Surface Emissivity Model ( Weng et al. 2001

understand orographic modification of frontal precipitation processes but also to satisfy the need for further development and refinement of algorithms used to convert GPM’s satellite measurements to precipitation amounts in midlatitudes. The algorithms applied to TRMM satellite data over a nearly 17-yr period have been very successful for rain measurement and characterizing tropical convection ( Simpson 1988 ; Simpson et al. 1996 ; Kummerow et al. 1998 ; Zipser et al. 2006 ; Huffman et al. 2007
