selection, derivation of target displacement, height assignment (HA), and automatic quality control (AQC). The cloud mask is used to define the suitability of the channel to provide good displacement vectors at all locations. The AMV extraction scheme uses the forecast temperature vertical profiles for HA from the ECMWF prediction model. 3. Target extraction The target extraction process is based on a fixed processing grid. Each target area is composed of 28 × 28 pixels corresponding to about 30 km × 30

-nadir maxima are likely a result of wind direction sensitivity ( Wentz et al. 1984 ). The KaPR standard deviations are slightly higher for the MS than the HS data due to the shorter pulse width and are qualitatively similar to the KuPR data. The effect of more stringent quality control (reduction of the cloud LWP, its spatial variability, and cost function thresholds by 50%; denoted QC2 in Fig. 3 ) is also most evident here in reducing the KaPR standard deviation, but the differences are negligible enough

signal capable of being discerned from the background by GMI. Fig . 11. Zonal-mean monthly rainfall for September 2014–August 2015. Both the MS and NS estimates are shown. The official GPCP estimates are also shown in the figure. d. Comparison to MRMS rain estimates Combined algorithm estimates of surface precipitation rates are evaluated using the Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor [MRMS; see Zhang et al. (2016) ] precipitation rate product. The MRMS product is a quality-controlled, rain gauge

and KaMS. The sampling interval of the KaHS, however, is 250 m for all measurement ranges. b. Analyzed data and period A phase code in the phase shifters controls the antenna pattern of the KuPR. While the JAXA DPR project team tested 39 phase codes to examine the effect of the sidelobe clutter interference of KuPR, the operation of the phase code can be classified into three main types: 1) a phase code for 18 March–8 April 2014, 2) a phase code for 8 April–25 July 2014, and 3) a phase code for

for the standard products, and from ERA-Interim for the final quality-controlled climatology products. Fig . 4. Surface classes defined by GPROF 2014 for a single day. High latitudes occasionally experience colder temperatures than are seen by the NMQ network. Databases for large sections of Siberia as well as sea ice and sea ice edges cannot be populated using NMQ data. These regions were populated using a combination of satellite and model data. CloudSat data was collocated with AMSR-E and
