It shows retrievals from the HALO-borne microwave radiometers for two flight segments during RF06.
Satellite with microwave radiometer is able to observe the water vapor under all conditions, making it the most effective tool for water vapor observation with large spatial coverage over the ocean.
Launching into three orbital planes and harnessing the power of scanning microwave radiometers, TROPICS can monitor changes in the precipitation, humidity, temperature and cloud properties of hurricanes every 21 minutes.
The famous Marcor technique, which measures the additional time-delay integral of atmosphere on the path of radio wave propagation with ground-based microwave radiometer, gives distance error correction directly [15].

Although the minimum ice extent wasn't as low as that seen in 2007, when unusual weather conditions caused extreme melting, the sea ice area as measured by the microwave radiometer on NASA's Aqua satellite did drop slightly lower than 2007 levels for about ten days in early September.

Two millimeter-wave sensors were onboard: the Electrically Scanning Microwave Radiometer (ESMR) operating at 19.35 GHz, and the Nimbus-E Microwave Spectrometer (NEMS) operating five channels at 22.235, 31.4, 53.65, 54.9 and 58.8 GHz.
The TRMM also carries a passive microwave radiometer, the TRMM microwave imager (TMI), which takes observations in nine channels at five frequencies--10.7, 19.35, 21.3, 37.0, and 85.5 GHz.
