Radiative transfer without scattering

Radiative Transfer Without Scattering

Remember RTE without scattering:

(Also known as Schwarzschild equation.)With T(z,z´) the transmission between level z and z´

B.-M. Sinnhuber, Remote Sensing I, University of Bremen, Summer 2007


Rte for satellite nadir sounder

RTE for Satellite Nadir Sounder

The RTE without scattering can be solved to give the upwarddirected radiance at the altitude z´

This is what a satellite nadir sounder in the microwave orinfra-red spectral region will observe (for ).

Side remark case with no atmosphere

Side Remark: Case with no atmosphere

If atmospheric absorption (and thus emission) can be neglected,

the observed radiance is given by the emission from the surface:

For known emissivity ε this can be inverted to get the

surface temperature Tsurf.

Weighting functions

Weighting Functions

can be written as:

with the Weighting FunctionsK(z) defined as:

I.e., the measured radiance is determined by the thermal emissionfrom the different levels, weighted by the Weighting Function.

Temperature retrieval

Temperature Retrieval

If the absorption results from a uniformly mixed compound(such as CO2 or O2), the absorption coefficient can be assumedto be of the form:

with the number density profile n(z) decreasing exponentiallywith height

(scale height H, typically about 7km)Thus:

Weighting functions for temperature retrieval

Weighting Functions for Temperature Retrieval

If

then the transmission will be given by

And the Weighting Functions are given by

Mathematical discussion of weighting functions

Mathematical Discussion of Weighting Functions

The weighting functions

have their maximum at zmax when

At the maximum the weighting function have the value:
