50 m results in a bias exceeding 1.5 K after a month for example, on the order of the typical model biases. The errors in the SW budget are confirmed by the model biases in total cloud cover ( Fig. 11b ), revealing a significant negative bias in cloud cover in the stratocumulus regions. There is also an underestimate of the total column liquid water path in the same regions, exceeding 50 g m −2 , compared to version 6 retrievals from SSM/I ( Wentz 1997 ) (not shown). The surface SW budget is

an improved precipitation forecast in the ECMWF Integrated Forecasting System (IFS). A validation of the corrected AMMA radiosondes shows good agreement with independent ground-based global positioning system (GPS) total column water vapor (TCWV) measurements at several AMMA sites. Faccani et al. (2009) tested the impacts of this bias correction scheme on the AMMA soundings in the French Action de Recherche Petite Echelle Grande Echelle (ARPEGE) assimilation system ( Gauthier and Thépaut 2001
