Retrieval Method

This section covers algorithm flow, cloud clearing, pressure levels and layers, and channel subsets.

Algorithm Flowchart

Description of the CLIMCAPS Optimal Estimation inversion algorithm, a retrieval method to invert hyperspectral infrared radiance measurements into vertical atmospheric profiles.

Pressure Levels and Layers

Provides detail on CLIMCAPS profile representation and its standard pressure grid. Provides information on pressure levels vs. layers and adjusting profiles to surface pressure. Psuedocode for adjusting boundary layer values is provided.
