Special Edition on Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM): 5th Anniversary,
Estimation of the path-integrated attenuation (PIA) is a critical part of retrieving precipitation parameters using measurements from the Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) on board the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission (GPM) satellite. In this paper, we describe and evaluate different techniques used to estimate the PIA using both single- and dual-frequency DPR radar data. The resulting algorithm forms part of the present operational system used to process the DPR data.
