Moradi is Co-I of NASA Proposal Developing A New Satellite Instrument

Traditional earth-observing microwave instruments utilize heterodyne receivers for measuring the radiance emitted by the earth and its atmosphere. These instruments which indirectly measure atmospheric temperature, water vapor, clouds, as well as surface information, have played an important role in improving the NWP weather forecasts and reanalyses, such as MERRA generated by GMAO. However, because of limitations in current microwave technologies in simultaneously processing an ultra-wide band (20-200 GHz) at high spectral resolutions, the number of channels for the current microwave instruments is very limited (e.g., 22 channels for ATMS and less for most other MW instruments).
