Paper Abstract

The success of vertical inversion measurements and processes from low altitude satellites has led us to speculate on the possibilities and returns of performing inversion from synchronous altitudes. We postu3ated the question as to whether one could accomplish temperature and composition inversion with a lateral resolution of about one mile square over a total field of about one hundred miles, and repeat this measurement about every hour. This would provide a continual picture of the temperature, water vapor and ozone content for specific mesoscale analysis. It would give a representation of "thermal winds" on a meaningful meteorological time scale.
