Abstract: The tropical atmosphere plays a major role in the climate dynamics, through the influence of water vapour and clouds on the radiative budget of the Earth, and the release of latent heat in rainy systems. Present operational satellites do not allow reliable estimations of atmospheric water parameters, because they suffer from inappropriate instrumentation (geosynchronous) or from insufficient sampling (polar orbiters). TRMM is the only scheduled mission devoted to the tropics, but will still provide an insuffi…
