Accounting for surface reflection in meteorological processing of infrared spectral measurements from the GOES-8 sounder

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


To improve the accuracy of vertical temperature-moisture profiles retrieved from GOES sounder IR measurements, the surface emissivity (SE) must be accounted for in the solution of the inverse problem. A model accounting for SE and an algorithm of solution are presented. The solution includes SE, the surface temperature, and the temperature-moisture profile. Results over land are discussed. Accounting for SE positively effects the solution.
