The Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer (SFMR) is an important scientific instrument for assessing the intensity of tropical cyclones. NOAA and U.S. Air Force Reserve airplanes are deployed with SFMRs into tropical cyclones in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins and report ocean-surface wind-speed and column-integrated rain-rate retrievals from the instrument to the National Hurricane Center. SFMR measurements are some of the only high-wind measurements available to the research community for validation of other sensors, so ensuring their high quality is of significant importance for the scientific community and emergency management officials. This paper presents the development of an improved wind-speed retrieval algorithm in the tropical cyclone environment while minimizing changes to rain-rate retrievals. View this paper.
