Short summary
Microwave (MW) satellite instruments are used for a variety of applications such as retrieving geophysical variables such as temperature and humidity. They are also assimilated into NWP models to improve the weather forecast. However, MW instruments are subject to radiometric and geometric errors. This study evaluates the observations from several MW instruments for radiometric errors and provides correction coefficients for the data that are biased.
