Abstract
Tropical cyclone (TC) is part of the most serious natural disasters. Western Pacific is the region with the highest frequency of tropical cyclones (TCs). By simulating and correcting the brightness temperatures (TBs) of the microwave humidity and temperature sounder (MWHTS) onboard the Fengyun-3C (FY-3C) satellite, a method is proposed to observe the TCs in the Western Pacific. The Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF) and the fast Radiative Transfer model for TOVS (RTTOV) are adopted in our method. Then, simulated TBs are linearly corrected based on the field-of-views (FOVs), channels and latitude bands. After that, the biases of all channels are within 2 K and close to zero, and the RMSEs are less than 10-K except Channels 10 and 15. Therefore, this WRF/RTTOV method can be implemented in other TCs in the Western Pacific region. In addition, a precipitation detection algorithm is proposed and used to detect precipitation in the TC area. Compared with the FY-3C MWHTS and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Multi-Satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) precipitation products, the results indicate that our precipitation detection algorithm has reached better indicators. The potential application can lay a foundation for precipitation rate retrieval and further research.
