A satellite mission is proposed to provide frequent, high-resolution measurements of surface winds, rain, and temperature profiles to support critical observations of Mesoscale Convective Systems (MCS) over the global tropical oceans. The proposed mission includes an innovative active/passive microwave system coupled with IR cloud top measurements for multi-layer atmosphere observations. The TropSat system will provide frequent, high-resolution measurements of the near-surface wind vector anddoi:10.1109/radar.2009.4977098 fatcat:vc332jaqmje5larqrcnzygm54a
