into the global GCM with interactive radiative impact of aerosols. The product provides continuous spatial distributions of aerosols consistent with the satellite observations, which allows a more realistic investigation on the African easterly jet (AEJ) ( Reale et al. 2011 , 2014 ). This work advances to assimilate precipitation-sensitive radiances into high-resolution mesoscale atmospheric simulations of the WAM. The goal is to create cloud and precipitation distributions that are consistent

accumulation during the winter in the Olympic Mountains were made by airborne lidar aboard the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO) aircraft ( Painter et al. 2016 ) and by crews carried by helicopter to measure the depth and density of the snowpack. The manual snow surveys were conducted near most of the locations of the snow poles and cameras. The lidar measurements were compared to data obtained on an earlier flight conducted in September 2014 with no snow cover on the mountains to

-point calibration adjustment is done for these sensors. Teams providing results for the sounding channels include TAMU, UCF, Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (SSAI), and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology. For the sounding channels above 100 GHz, the TAMU algorithm uses SST, WS, and the temperature profile provided by GDAS and iteratively adjusts the RH and CLW profiles to match the radiances of the reference radiometer using an algorithm described by
