Paper Abstract

Since late 1980s there have been a series of satellite-borne microwave (MW) radiometers operated for remote sensing of water-related parameters in particular for rainfall observation among them SSMII on DMSP TMI on TRMM and AMSR-E on AQUA are well known instruments. A lot of retrieval schemes have been published for operational and research purposes. Inter-comparison of different retrieval algorithms and their products is an important task for their reliable application with enough accuracy. In this paper we will compare some algorithms for SSM/I products over West Pacific area. The methodology is mainly focusing on the comparison of retrieved hourly rain rate at the spatially and temporally collocated area statistical results and case study will be given.
