Infrared Radiation Luminance Data

    Any subscribers to the Monthly Weather Review or the Journal of Geophysical Research - Atmospheres here?
    Interesting research published by a team of researchers at the Riken Institute in Japan;
    The project is the first time “infrared radiation luminance data” has been used to model weather patterns in areas under heavy cloud cover that would usually stymie such modelling.
    The breakthrough is the result of pairing data collected by Japan’s Himawari-8 weather satellite with a programme run on a supercomputer at the country’s Riken science institute.

    Anyone have any opinions on this? Do any of you think there's any real benefit or merit in this?
