MiRS for Megha-Tropiques: A preliminary version of MiRS for Megha-Tropiques (using SAPHIR only) has been delivered to OSPO. This version is intended primarily to test sizing and resource requirements. The science algorithms are still undergoing testing and optimization, but the water vapor and TPW products have been tested and are relatively mature. The retrieval of other products, specifically the hydrometeors and cloud water, require additional testing to determine the potential accuracy (S. Rudlosky, email@example.com).
