(2011) for details on the algorithm working principles. The discrimination between rain and no-rain regions is fully entrusted to the threshold Δ win , which acts as a filter for nonprecipitating droplets on the basis of their attitude to extinguish radiation at 89 and 150 GHz. This threshold exploits the absorption-and-scattering effects due to the presence of large rain drops and growing ice crystals in the observed region. As demonstrated by Laviola (2006) , large amounts of liquid water in the
