A neural network retrieval method has been applied to investigate AMSU-A/ AMSU-B atmospheric temperature and humidity profiling capabilities over land. The retrieval method benefits from a reliable estimate of the land emissivity and skin temperature as well as first guess information regarding the temperature-humidity profiles. It has been applied on a large geographic area (60°W-60°E, 60°S-60°N) and atmospheric situations (winter and summer). The retrieved RMS errors are within 2 K and 9% in temperature…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
