Abstract

We discuss the influence of the deviation between the reference atmosphere and the actual atmosphere on the effective instrument function method for atmospheric remote sensing inversion and present an alternative method—the circulation method—that was developed from the effective instrument function method. The computation time for this method is greater than that of the effective instrument function method but does not need a priori information about atmospheric parameter profiles.
