An assessment of the accuracy of the RTTOV fast radiative transfer model using IASI data

M. Matricardi
2009 Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions  
IASI measurements of spectral radiances made the 1 st April 2008 are compared with simulations performed using the RTTOV fast radiative transfer model utilizing regression coefficients based on different line-by-line models. The comparisons are performed within the framework of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts Integrated Forecasting System using fields of temperature, water vapour and ozone obtained from very short range forecasts. Simulations are performed in controlled
