Use of Multiple Gauges and Microwave Attenuation of Precipitation for Satellite Verification Academic Article uri icon


  • The design consists of comparing a sequence of pairs of contemporaneous measurements taken from the ground and from space. The line average measurement leads to a smaller mean-square error compared to the case of a single point gauge, since some of the small-scale variability of the rain field is smoothed away by the line integration. The multiple point gauge measurements also give smaller mean-square error than that of a single point gauge. The centroid of the line and point gauge configurations are considered to be located randomly inside the field of view for different overpasses. -from Authors
