Abstract:

The objectives of this research are 1 to compare the parameterized latent heat release estimates obtained from the SESAME I data set with observed precipitation values and radar fields. 2 to test three procedures for utilizing satellite cloud images to modify these conventional latent heating estimates, and 3 to propose a procedure which combines latent heat release calculations and satellite imagery and whose results exhibit the best comparison with observational data forms.
