To complement the meteorological modeling of the melting layer, a model of the scattering properties at microwave frequencies for snow, melting snow, and rain is implemented. The scattering model, running in tandem with a meteorological model, generates the reflectivity fields associated with the hydrometeors in the model to facilitate comparisons with available observations. Several existing and a few new approaches for the scattering of melting snow are attempted. In addition, the models aredoi:10.1175/1520-0469(1999)056<3593:motmlp>2.0.co;2 fatcat:xwbqnd67xfhqrpkvw2s7eu7l74
