Global profile training database for satellite regression retrievals with estimates of skin temperature and emissivity *

Regression retrievals of atmospheric properties require a global dataset of temperature, moisture, and ozone profiles in addition to estimates of skin temperature and emissivity to train the regression. A new data set consisting of approximately 12,000 global profiles of temperature, moisture, and ozone has been created, drawing from NOAA-88, ECMWF, TIGR-3… CONTINUE READING
