HRD Seminar: Dr. Jeff Steward, UCLA/JIFRESSE and NASA JPL – 22 August 2013

Jeff presented a seminar on “Uncertainty in forward microwave satellite radiance calculations and what to do about them”.Abstract:  Forward simulations of cloudy satellite radiances are fraught with uncertainty.  The scattering parameters that determine satellite brightness temperatures critically depend on complex, unknown size and shape distributions of liquid and solid hydrometeors.  These uncertainties can lead to differences of 50 K or more …
