Abstract

Satellite observations cover almost the entire surface of Earth and provide the atmospheric parameters including open ocean and is a powerful tool for typhoon monitoring. However, current microwave radiometers are onboard polar orbiting platform which are often lack of data in certain areas and periods because of satellite's orbit and revisiting rate. Global Satellite Mapping of Precipitation (GSMaP) data which integrated microwave and infrared data and is a temporal- And spatial-continuous precipitation data set to estimate a typhoon's rainfall rate in our current Improved Tropical Rainfall Potential (I-TRaP) Technique for typhoon rainfall potential over Taiwan. The preliminary results suggest a good agreement than TRaP and I-TRaP, which give us an opportunity that using the combined microwave and infrared data for typhoon rainfall predication in the future.
