Abstract

An accurate numerical line-by-line model of the radiative transfer through the atmosphere is used to simulate measurements of the advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR/2) on the NOAA series of near-polar-orbiting satellites for conditions of the region of the Greenland, Iceland, and Norwegian Sea. A set of regionally optimized zenith-angle dependent coefficients for the "split-window' algorithm is derived and its error characteristics are discussed. -from Author
