Paper Abstract

This report presents the atmospheric and surface products derived from the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the physical bases associated with all algorithms. An example of AMSU derived temperature structure in hurricane Bonnie is used to illustrate how cloud contamination on the AMSU measurements is corrected in temperature retrieval. NOAA and other agencies are routinely utilizing the AMSU products to monitor various high-impact weather events, storm-related flooding and hurricane wind-related damages.
