This paper studies the retrieval characteristics of water-vapour retrievals from infrared TOVS TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder) radiances and microwave SSM/T-2 (Special Sensor Microwave/Water-vapour Sounder) radiances. An optimal-estimation retrieval scheme is built around a radiative-transfer model that uses a spectral-band model based on the Malkmus line distribution for the infrared and the MPM92 transmission model for the microwave. Characteristics from synthetic retrievals show that the… CONTINUE READING
