Abstract : Despite a lot of progress over the last decades, rain retrieval from spaceborne measurement has been a challenge since the first launch of a passive microwave radiometers on one of the NOAA Defense Meteorological satellites in the 70s. Deep-learning and convolutional U-Nets might be able to offer a breakthrough on the topic because they do take into account the topology of both the rain field and the measured brightness temperatures. The present paper offers the very first results on the application of such artificial neural networks on the rain retrieval problem.
