The climate and weather forecast predictive capability for precipitation intensity is limited by gaps in the understanding of cloud-convective processes. A better understanding of these processes lacks observational constraints, due to the difficulty in obtaining vertically resolved pressure, temperature, and water vapor structure inside and near convective clouds. By collecting sequential radio occultation (RO) observations from a constellation of closely spaced low Earth-orbiting satellites, the RO tangent points tend to cluster together, and the associated ray paths sample independent air mass quantities. The presence of heavy precipitation can be discerned by the use of the polarimetric RO (PRO) technique. Over time, one or more PRO intersect a region of heavy precipitation, and one or more capture the surrounding environment. View this paper.
