Abstract:

A FASCODE based physical retrieval algorithm for atmospheric temperature sounding is developed in support of data analysis for the SCRIBE high resolution interferometer using a modified version of FASCODE capable of treating highly opaque regions such as the CO2 Q branch at 667cm, radiances are simulated for comparison to SCRIBE data and the effects of line mixing are evaluated. Keywords Retrievals, Remote sensing, Line coupling.
