TES/Aura L2 Instantaneous Radiative Kernel Nadir Special Observation V007

Version 007
  • Abstract
    Using TES radiances, Jacobians and ozone profiles with hemispherical integration, it is possible to compute the TOA (top-of-atmosphere) flux from the infrared ozone band (in W/m2), instantaneous radiative kernels (IRK) (in W/m2/ppb), and logarithmic instantaneous radiative forcing kernels (LIRK) (in W/m2) for ozone. The IRK provides unique information for questions of chemistry-climate coupling since this is a direct measure of the radiative role of ozone which explicitly accounts for more dominant radiative processes such as clouds and water vapor. These products can be compared to climate model predictions of the same quantities.
  • Purpose
    Profiles can be compared to other measurements or models of this species or used as input to global chemical/dynamical models
  • Version Description
    New species retrieval products for PAN, OCS and relative humidity. New/updated joint products for TES-OMI O3 and TES-MLS CO. Updated GMAO a priori values. Improved O3 IRK values.
