Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present the first of a two part discussion to improve the specification of atmospheric transmission calculations using a new methodology to reduce the uncertainty in pixel-level temperature profiles derived from meteorological satellite sounder data. Temperature profiles are examined first, since these data are used to derive the moisture content of the atmosphere. Our results show that the uncertainty in the specification of temperature profiles, for pixel level retrievals of meteorological satellite sounder data, can be assessed using knowledge on the accuracy of the initial-guess to a physical relaxation algorithm.
