Lower Tropospheric Temperatures Based on AMSU Channel 4, PI: Carl Mears
Focus of this Work
The purpose of this project is to develop an alternative to the TLT product based on MSU Channel 2 and AMSU channel 5. The TLT product is created by extrapolating the MSU2 and AMSU5 data to lower altitude. The new product does not require extrapolation, but does require the development of algorithms to remove emission from Earth's surface.
