Statistical iterative scheme for estimating atmospheric relative humidity profiles
A retrieval method that is more robust near isothermal regions and temperature inversions is described, which results from an iterative combination of statistical methods based on a priori data which stabilize the effects of any singularities, and physical methods that reflect the nonlinear character of the equation of radiative transfer.
