-season retrievals, the six new NASA Unified-Weather Research and Forecasting (NU-WRF) Model 4ICE simulations are used to generate the CSH LUTs (discussed in the flowing sections). CSH tropical/warm-season retrievals are then merged with extratropical/cold-season retrievals based on the height of the freezing level. 1 3. NU-WRF Model and cases The GCE has been used for semi-idealized and longer-term simulations constrained by large-scale forcing derived from sounding networks; the latter ensures its simulated Q

detrimental for quantitative precipitation estimates; as a result, it is highly desirable to be able to flag such conditions. A new module is being evaluated for integration in the standard DPR level-2 operational algorithm ( Tanelli et al. 2017 ). Dubbed “trigger” (because it is designed to trigger different handling of the profile by the “solver” module), this module aims at detecting the occurrence of severe MS and NUBF within each DPR footprint in the inner swath (i.e., the matched swath). The trigger

observations were also an integral part of GCPEx; such observations are of fundamental importance to link the in situ measured particle properties to remotely sensed bulk characteristics. As part of GCPEx, ECCC’s dual-polarization scanning C-band radar located in King City, Ontario, Canada, performed (in addition to their operational scanning) range–height indicator sector scans and plan position indicator scans ( Hudak 2013 ). For some IOPs, the UND Citation flew in the coverage region of the King City
