Atmospheric radiative transfer modeling: a summary of the AER codes
Abstract The radiative transfer models developed at AER are being used extensively for a wide range of applications in the atmospheric sciences. This communication is intended to provide a coherentExpand
Radiative forcing by long‐lived greenhouse gases: Calculations with the AER radiative transfer models
A primary component of the observed, recent climate change is the radiative forcing from increased concentrations of long-lived greenhouse gases (LLGHGs). Effective simulation of anthropogenicExpand
Improved Daytime Column-Integrated Precipitable Water Vapor from Vaisala Radiosonde Humidity Sensors
Accurate water vapor profiles from radiosondes are essential for long-term climate prediction, weather prediction, validation of remote sensing retrievals, and other applications. The Vaisala RS80,Expand
Predicted errors of tropospheric emission spectrometer nadir retrievals from spectral window selection
[1] Error covariances and vertical resolutions are reported for Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) nadir-view retrievals of surface temperature, atmospheric temperature, H2O, O3, CO, and CH4.Expand
Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer observations of the tropospheric HDO/H2O ratio: Estimation approach and characterization
[1] We present global, vertical profile estimates of the HDO/H2O ratio from the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) on the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura satellite. We emphasize in this paperExpand
Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) satellite observations of tropospheric ammonia
Abstract. Observations of atmospheric ammonia are important in understanding and modelling the impact of ammonia on both human health and the natural environment. We present a detailed description ofExpand
Constraining U.S. ammonia emissions using TES remote sensing observations and the GEOS‐Chem adjoint model
Received 2 August 2012; revised 25 December 2012; accepted 3 January 2013. [1] Ammonia (NH3) has significant impacts on biodiversity, eutrophication, and acidification. Widespread uncertainty in theExpand
Nadir measurements of carbon monoxide distributions by the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer instrument onboard the Aura Spacecraft: Overview of analysis approach and examples of initial results
[1] We provide an overview of the nadir measurements of carbon monoxide (CO) obtained thus far by the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES). The instrument is a high resolution array FourierExpand
Ozone-CO correlations determined by the TES satellite instrument in continental outflow regions
0.4– 1.0 mol mol � 1 and consistent with ICARTT data. The GEOS-Chem model reproduces the O3-CO enhancement ratios observed in continental outflow, but model correlations are stronger and moreExpand

The methodology is based on the maximum a posteriori estimate, which mathematically requires the minimization of the difference between observed spectral radiances and a nonlinear model of radiative transfer of the atmospheric state subject to the constraint that the estimated state must be consistent with an a priori probability distribution for that state.
