Paper Abstract

The algorithm for atmospheric methane distribution retrieval in atmosphere from IASI spectra has been developed. The feasibility of Levenberg-Marquardt method for atmospheric methane total column amount retrieval from the spectra measured by IASI/METOP modified for the case of lack of a priori covariance matrices for methane vertical profiles is studied in this paper. Method and algorithm were implemented into software package together with iterative estimation of a posteriori covariance matrices and averaging kernels for each individual retrieval. This allows retrieval quality selection using the properties of both types of matrices. Methane (XCH4) retrieval by Levenberg-Marquardt method from IASI/METOP spectra is presented in this work. NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data provided by ESRL (NOAA, Boulder, USA) were taken as initial guess. Surface temperature, air temperature and humidity vertical profiles are retrieved before methane vertical profile retrieval. The data retrieved from ground-based measurements at the Ural Atmospheric Station and data of L2/IASI standard product were used for the verification of the method and results of methane retrieval from IASI/METOP spectra.
