Paper Abstract

Retrieval of atmospheric profiles of temperature and chemical components is generally accomplished by inverting the radiance function. Since the problem is non linear with respect to all variables, then a suitable linearization is resorted in order to solve the inverse problem. In this paper we introduce a new quasi-analytical method for estimating the coefficients of the linear problem that relies on a radiative transfer equation code for computing optical depths.
