Title: Microwave Radiometer Profiler (MWRP) Instrument Handbook

Abstract

The Microwave Radiometer Profiler (MWRP) provides time-series measurements of brightness temperatures from 12 channels between 22.235 and 58.80 GHz. These channels are sensitive to the presence of liquid water and precipitable water vapor and to the atmospheric temperature and humidity profile.
