Effect of inhomogeneity on the validation of SEVIRI LWP

Abstract:

We study the impact of horizontal cloud variability on the intercomparison of surface and satellite-based observations. In particular we compare LWP retrieved by the geostationary MSG-2 SEVIRI sensor to LWP retrieved by ground-based MW radiometers. This study is based on both synthetic cloudfields that allow accurate analysis of the various error sources and comparison of real SEVIRI and MW radiometer observations. In particular we provide evidence that shows that the errors introduced by int...
