Abstract

A scheme is used to compare contemporaneous measurements of rain rate from a single-field-of-view estimate, based on a satellite remote sensor such as a microwave radiometer, with those coming from a point raingauge. Using this scheme the errors are computed for several observed rainfall fields, either from the data estimated spectra or from analytically derived and characterized ground measurements. This quantification provides a lower bound to total errors, since perfect instruments are assumed in this work, and it helps in terms of isolating and evaluating typical biases that might be contaminating retrieval algorithms. -Authors
