Paper Abstract

Advanced satellite sensors are tasked with improving global measurements of the Earth's atmosphere, clouds, and surface to enable enhancements in weather prediction, climate monitoring capability, and environmental change detection. Achieving such measurement improvements requires instrument system advancements and/or optimization of geophysical information content extraction. This manuscript focuses on the impact of spectral resolution and coverage changes on remote sensing system information content, with a specific emphasis on thermodynamic state and trace species variables obtainable from advanced atmospheric sounders such as the Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder (AIRS) on the NASA EOS Aqua satellite, the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) on MetOP, and the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) system to fly on the NPP and JPSS series of satellites.
