VIRTEM Validation of IASI Radiative Transfer: Experiments and Modelling

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published


The new satellite instrument, IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer), is a moderate resolution (0.25cm^-1) Fourier Transform spectrometer which is scheduled for flight in 2002 on the European METOP satellite. IASI is expected to deliver vertical profiles of temperature and humidity data with a resolution of 1km. VIRTEM is an EU project to validate the instrumentation and retrieval methods to be used on IASI.
