Description
The Microwave Radiometer (MWR) provides time-series measurements
of column-integrated amounts of water vapor and liquid
water. The instrument itself is essentially a sensitive
microwave receiver. That is, it is tuned to measure the
microwave emissions of the vapor and liquid water molecules in
the atmosphere at specific frequencies.

The MWR receives microwave radiation from the sky at 23.8 GHz
