Paper Abstract

Three candidate algorithms for the retrieval of ozone profile for the NPP OMPS Limb Profiler are described. The first one relies on the well established Doublet/Triplet method coupled with Optimal Estimation. The second one performs spectral fitting and uses Multiple Linear Regression. The last one is a direct application of the Optimal Estimation method on the actual CCD array measurements. The fundamentals of each technique are reviewed and their advantages/disadvantages are discussed. Sample results are given to illustrate the performance of each method.
