Paper Abstract

The Texas A&M monthly oceanic rainfall retrieval algorithm is based on radiative transfer models and can only be modified on a physically sound basis. Within this constraint we have examined some improvements to the algorithm and it appears that it can be made significantly better. In particular, it appears that by proper use of the range of frequencies available on TMI and AMSR that the need for the log-normal fit can be eliminated.
