Applications of RTTOV
Example applications of using the RTTOV software.
- Radiance observation monitoring (to monitor mean bias of each channel)
- Assimilation of satellite radiances in a variational analysis for NWP and reanalyses
- Physical retrievals of temperature, water vapour etc from satellite sounder data (e.g. use in 1D-Var)
- Simulated satellite imagery from high-resolution NWP model fields
- Simulation studies of new satellite sensors
- Validation of climate model runs in radiance space (e.g. upper tropospheric water vapour)
