Atmospheric remote sensing techniques have become popular in the field of meteorology due to both the generation of spectral information of the atmosphere and the cover of wide regions in short periods of time. In this work, some relevant features about the Advance Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) are highlighted, in order to establish some basic criterias for assimilation and use of passive microwave data into algorithms to retrieve rain rate from spaceborne. In addition, an intercomparison with the Advance Microwave Unit Sensor (AMSU) is presented.
