Abstract

We assess components of the methods developed at GLA and LMD to retrieve temperature, humidity and ozone profiles from AIRS (Advanced Infrared Radiometric Sounder) and IASI (Improved Atmospheric Sounder in the Infrared) like data. Both methodologies involve use of a physical inversion scheme but differ among other things, by the initialization process and the use of a priori information.
