Abstract:

Tests were performed on a recursive algorithm that recovers vertical distributions of concentration and temperature by inversion of spectrally resolved IR limb radiance profiles. The tests, which used synthetic data with added noise, established that the method can recover sharply peaked concentration profiles. The study results also give an indication of the spectral signal-to-noise requirements of the method. Author
