Abstract:

The iteration scheme proposed by Chahine 1968, 1970, 1972, 1974 for the solution of the radiative transfer equation is discussed in the context of the inverse problem for the thermal structure of the atmosphere. Sufficient conditions which insure the convergence of the iteration are given.
