TOVS GLA MONTHLY GRIDS from NOAA-7 02 (TOVSAMNC) at GES DISC
Entry ID: TOVSAMNC_02


Summary
Abstract: This dataset (TOVSAMNC) contains the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) level 3 geophysical parameters derived using data from NOAA-7 and the physical retrieval method of Susskind et al. (1984) and processed by the Satellite Data Utilization Office of the Goddard Laboratory for Atmospheres at NASA/GSFC. This method, which is hydrodynamic model- and a priori data-dependent, is designated as ... View entire text

Quality Temperatures: Coarse layer temperatures are better defined by the TOVS radiances than point temperatures and therefore the results should be less method dependent provided effects of clouds on the radiances and sources of systematic errors are handled appropriately. The coarse
layer temperatures are best determined in the order starting from the lower troposphere, with quantitative accuracy ... View entire text
