Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A set of 84 clear coincident oceanic Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas and 42 AEROSE radiosonde - AIRS overpass matches have been selected to provide preliminary AIRS thermodynamic validation. The analysis indicates consistent statistical validation within Tobin et al. 2005 and Szczodak 2005. Further validation will be conducted in radiance space to remove any cloud contaminated AIRS profiler outliers that exist within the above data set matches. An evaluation of line-by-line radiance calculations vs clear/cloud-cleared AIRS radiances will also be conducted.
