Land Surface Characterization for GPM-Era Algorithms

Researchers: Ralph Ferraro, Cecilia Hernandez, Nai-Yu Wang (with significant contributions from the 20+ members of the PMM LSWG)

One of our focus areas during the past year was to complete an emissivity intercomparison study under the auspices of the Land Surface Characterization Working Group (LSWG) which supports the activities of several algorithm teams. Accurate emissivity estimates are needed to advance the current state of precipitation retrievals over land.
