Abstract
At the Goddard Laboratory for Atmospheric Sciences (GLAS) we have developed a physi-cally based satellite temperature sounding retrieval system, involving the simultaneous analysis of HIRS2 and MSU sounding data, for determining atmospheric and surface conditions which are consistent with the observed radiances. In addition to determining accurate atmospheric temperature profiles even in the presence of cloud contamination, the system provides global estimates of day and night sea or land surface temperatures, snow and ice cover, and parameters related to cloud cover. Details of the system are described elsewhere. Here, a brief overview of the system is presented as well as recent improvements and previously unpublished results, relating to the sea-surface intercomparison workshop, the diurnal variation of ground temperatures, and forecast impact tests.
