[AAS22-13] Microwave Radiometer Network (Micro-NET) in Kanto region for high-temporal monitoring of vapor
Keywords:Microwave radiometer, vapor
radiometer network (Micro-NET) in Kanto region since 2014. The Micro-NET will provide
vertical profile of vapor and temperature in high temporal resolution and contribute
as a powerful tool for data assimilation to improve forecast skill of early developing
cumulonimbus. NIED installed another three microwave radiometers (MWR)
in Niigata prefecture to retrieve temperature profile in snow storms.
This study will report the preliminary results on the performance of MWRs
by the comparison between MWR and sounding data at Tsukuba and Niigata cite.
