( Kidd 1998 ). In future versions of the XT database, it is planned to relax these issues through conducting MMF simulations with finer-resolution GCE (250-m horizontal grid spacing) over subgrid heterogeneous surface conditions. Importantly, these new MMF simulations, with new physics and grid configurations, will be constrained against the GPM combined product (GPM-2BCMB), in terms of precipitation intensity, microphysics, and storm structure. In parallel, the MMF simulation will be evaluated

Ocean. AR landfalls based on the less (more) stringent satellite-based AR criteria (see section 2 ) were used for comparison focusing on the ocean (land). The outcomes are expected to provide useful insights on the application of such datasets and future plans to improve the observing systems and products. 2. Dataset and study area a. AR database In this study, ARs are defined as satellite-observed integrated water vapor (IWV) plumes greater than 2000 km long, less than 1000 km wide, and with IWV
