NCEP Global Branch Meeting 7 October 2010 Outline Background Estimates/Results from research projects HALOE SAGE II
Estimates from IR radiance assimilation Forecast impacts Fits to observations. 2
Disclaimer This is still WORK IN PROGRESS Using infrared radiances to estimate stratospheric moisture in NWP is not being done by anyone else. These are moisture ESTIMATES Observations are not available Derived from jacobian tails
Uses a nudging approach 3 Sources of information IASI (dominant) AIRS GPS-RO
RTM and CRTM are different RTM -> GFS CRTM -> GSI 3 IASI Jacobian for on-line water vapor channel 3327
