Raincast (call ESA ITT ITT AO/1-9324/18/NL/IA) aims at identifying and consolidating the science requirements for a satellite mission that could complement the existing space-based precipitation observing system and that could optimally liaise with concurrent efforts currently made by other agencies in this area (especially by NASA and JAXA). Because of the complexity of the cloud and precipitation processes the study must capitalize on the most recent advancement and mission concepts for precipitation observations with state-of- the-art instrumentation and should make full use of the most recent advancements in inversion methods for the estimation of precipitation variables from primary measurements (e.g. latest ice scattering libraries, physical relationships derived by in-situ measurements).
