Paper Abstract

Although space-borne passive microwave techniques have been used in global precipitation remote sensing with preliminary success, improvement of retrieval accuracy is still an active subject. As part of Chinese National High-Tech Research and Development Program for Space Technology, an improving method for remote sensing of rainfall distribution over ocean area is investigated. In this paper, the vertical structures of cloud model are established, and the radiative transfer models are briefly introduced, also some comparison results between simulation and observation are discussed.
