products to be a globally uniform best estimate of truth, such as evaluations of snowfall in reanalysis model from CloudSat observations ( Behrangi et al. 2016 ; Palerme et al. 2017 ). If it can be demonstrated that a DWR retrieval can minimize a bias in D m across different storms, it would prove that DWR retrievals of precipitation are not just more accurate and sensitive than their single-wavelength counterparts, but they are more globally consistent as well. In this study, collocated airplane

important to understand the microphysical processes in the convective cores because they are directly related to the latent heat release and also related to the strength of vertical air motion in convective updrafts. Both numerical model simulations (e.g., Fierro et al. 2009 ) and field observations (e.g., Schumacher et al. 2007 ; Johnson 1984 ) have been attempted. In either case, it is recognized that the microphysical properties of the hydrometeors, especially ice particles in deep convection
