Paper Abstract

Satellite thermal sounding of temperature and moisture plays an important role in current atmospheric observational systems. Next generation systems may utilize surface-based passive observations and their com-bination with both active sensors and satellites. This technology continues to require development of mathematical retrieval algorithms to derive profiles from radiance observations. In this paper, commonly used algorithms and their application to contemporary sounding problems are discussed.
