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

1. Introduction Numerical climate and land–atmosphere models are widely used for providing land–atmospheric predictions at different time scales. These models typically capture both atmospheric thermodynamic processes and cloud microphysics to predict the dynamics of land–atmosphere water and energy fluxes. To improve the predictions of land–atmosphere state variables and parameters, a common practice is to assimilate observations from in situ gauges, radiosondes, and satellite measurements
