satellite-derived rain rates for improving atmospheric analyses, particularly over tropical oceans, began more than 20 years ago. Empirical techniques were developed based on the inversion of simple convection schemes to retrieve moisture profiles or on diabatic normal-mode initialization to adjust the divergent circulation to satellite-derived heating rate profiles ( Krishnamurti et al. 1984 ; Donner 1988 ; Puri and Miller 1990 ; Heckley et al. 1990 ; Kasahara et al. 1996 ; and others).
