The atmospheric transmittance model for AMSU and HSB channels on the Aqua spacecraft uses a polynomial approximation to the temperature dependence of oxygen-band opacity within atmospheric layers. It uses look-up tables to calculate local water-vapor line intensity and pressure-broadening parameters as well as contributions to absorption from the water-vapor continuum, distant lines, and cloud liquid water. The algorithm includes water-line self-broadening and the magnetic-field effect on AMSU… CONTINUE READING
