Raju et al. (2013) ; the latter is a case study of the water vapor field surrounding a tropical water spout from a scanning microwave radiometer. We extend this research area into the equatorial Indian Ocean and adopt two approaches for evaluating surface-based microwave radiometry humidity profiling. One approach examines the retrieval accuracy itself, whereas the second approach assesses radiometry’s ability to capture equatorial humidity variability at a range of time scales. Examined time

raindrop shape as a function of diameter according to the Thurai et al. (2007) model, assuming raindrops fell at a 0° mean canting angle with a standard deviation up to 7.5° ( Huang et al. 2008 ). No sampling errors associated with actual radar measurements are included in any of the statistics or error analysis conducted in this study. Electromagnetic scattering simulation assumptions constrain all simulated radar variable ranges such that more variability or spread is expected in real radar
