Retrieval of geophysical variables from satellite observations: Recent algorithm development and validation approaches

Session ID#: 22843

Session Description:
Geophysical and climate variables such as water vapor, temperature, carbon dioxide, ozone, and other species, in addition to surface temperature and reflectance, retrieved from satellite observations yield an important dataset for weather, climate, environmental, and hydrological assessments. This session is dedicated to developing algorithms to retrieve geophysical variables from satellite observations as well as techniques and activities to validate the satellite products versus reference datasets.
