current operational algorithm is allowed to use radar-observed convective fraction information (bright blue) as an additional ancillary parameter (see section 4a ). As expected, a better match to the reference suggests that the information on convective fraction might be a key to mitigating PMW biases seen in Fig. 1 . However, radar observations of precipitation from space are sparse, typically limited to research missions (e.g., TRMM and GPM) and intended to serve as a reference rather than a

The TRMM ( Kummerow et al. 2000 ) and GPM ( Hou et al. 2014 ; Skofronick-Jackson et al. 2017 ) satellite missions in particular provided the data and the research framework allowing the successful development of research and operational retrieval algorithms. Today, the GPM Microwave Imager (GMI) is integrated in an international constellation
