emissivity near 0.95 regardless of frequency or rainfall. e. Meghna seasonal wetland Figure 9 shows the identical plot format as Fig. 5 , except it represents GMI overpasses and model data within a seasonal wetland in the “haor” area of the Meghna River (24.5°N, 91.0°E). During monsoon onset, it becomes a large sediment-filled water body with a rich stock of fish, almost like a freshwater lake. As the monsoon recedes, it reverts back to its dry state. The seasonal river flows are apparent in the trend

is shown in Fig. 5 , as additional data are acquired, the goal is to improve the resolution to 0.1°. The temporal reference dataset is expected to improve path attenuation estimates near and at land/water boundaries, including areas at or near coastlines, rivers, small islands and peninsulas, where spatial reference data are often sparse or missing. Implementation of multicategory land and wet soil/light rain reference datasets might further improve the estimates. The best test of the method

. Case studies We describe two case studies in this section. The first case was an organized rain system offshore of the Mississippi River delta (box 1 in Fig. 2 ) on 10 October 2009. In this case, the dynamic surface flag method reclassified the original “coast” flagged pixels as ocean, considering the actual size and geometry of footprints of the high frequency used in the RNC. The second case was the edge of a large rain system in the Gulf of California on 14 January 2004 (box 2 in Fig. 2 ). In
