The Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) MTGV Super-Site is now fully
operational with the Xport polarimetric radar ready to sample convective
The first Radio-Sounding Campaign dedicated to
MT-SAPHIR based Water Vapor products validation, has been going on
since May 29th, thanks to a lot of support from ASECNA (Agence pour la
SECurité de la NAvigation Aerienne en Afrique et Madagascar). Every day
a pair of radio sounding is launched in synchronization of
Megha-Tropiques overpasses. The 2 RS are launched 35 min apart to allow
simultaneous sampling of the lower and upper part of the troposphere
while MT is overpassing. This dry phase campaign is scheduled for 2
weeks and will be followed by a moist-phase campaign in the hart of the
African Monsoon season in 2d half of July.

Megha-Tropiques was present at the 30th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology that took place in Ponte-Vedra Beach, FL, USA on 15-20th of April 2012. The Megha-Tropiques data set is an invaluable source of information for the community working on tropical meteorology and hurricane forecast. Nicolas Viltard gave two talks, one on the mission status and the other on the MT-II field campaign during DYNAMO in the Maldives in November-December 2011. Both talks (recorded during the conference) are available at:

Tapeer-BRAIN is a combined Microwave-Infrared accumulated precipitation estimation product implemented as a Megha-Tropiques Level 4 product. TAPEER stands for Tropical Amount of Precipitation with an Estimate of ERrors. It provides precipitation estimations and associated errors at the one-degree/one-day accumulated scale.
To characterize the evolution of the energy budget along the life cycle of convective systems, a MT level 4 product, called "MCS composite" has been developped.
The ATBD (Algorithm Theoritical Basis Document) of the TAPEER algorithm and MCS composite algorithm have been published under the Megha-Tropiques Technical Memorandum
(MTTM) n°4 and n°5.
