Short summary
The focus of the paper is estimating profiles of water vapor and temperature with high accuracy from microwave radiometer measurements, performed for the month of August 2011 as part of the Integrated Ground Campaign during the Cloud Aerosol Interaction and Precipitation Enhancement Experiment (CAIPEEX-IGOC). To improve the accuracy of retrieved profiles Bayesian optimal estimation has been used along with optimized background data set.
