Microwave Radiances in Weather Forecasting

At SFCG-24 in Perros-Guirec, France, Dr. Roger Saunders of the International TOVS Working Group (ITWG) gave a presentation on the impact that satellite measurements have had on meteorological forecasting (short and medium-range). The presentation, entitled "Use of Microwave Radiances for Weather Forecasting"(PDF, 2.48 MB), offered very clear information and quantitative elements that can be very useful when arguing the case for passive remote sensing protection.

Passive Microwave Workshop

The Third Passive Microwave Workshop, sponsored by NOAA, was held in Silver Spring, MD on 1-2 May 2007.
