This Special Issue hosts papers on all aspects of remote sensing of precipitation, including applications that embrace the use of remote-sensing techniques of precipitation in tackling issues, such as precipitation estimations and retrievals, along with their methodologies and corresponding error assessment; precipitation modelling including validation, instrument comparison, and calibration; understanding of cloud and precipitation microphysical properties; precipitation downscaling; precipitation droplet size distribution; assimilation of remotely sensed precipitation into numerical weather prediction models; and measurement of precipitable water vapor.
