. (2010) for observations analyzed in a similar region to where GCPEx took place [Alliance Icing Research Study (AIRS) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and the Canadian CloudSat / Cloud–Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations ( CALIPSO ) Validation Programme (C3VP) near Barrie]. Figure 2 shows PDFs of D m , σ m , and μ derived from the in situ observations for all of the flights that took place during GCPEx. The properties have different distributions depending on temperature

Blankenship (2012) , and Ortega et al. (2016) . TRMM observations have already shed light on where the most intense thunderstorms occur and what their microwave radiometer and Ku-band radar footprints are ( Zipser et al. 2006 ). Because of the high single-scattering albedo of ice particles, passive microwave radiometers feature large brightness temperature depressions corresponding to large amounts of ice ( Cecil 2011 ; Cecil and Blankenship 2012 ). The most extreme storm in the TRMM dataset was
