Introduction

MORSE v4 is a Fortran90 program developed under NCEO to perform retrievals of atmospheric profiles from satellite infrared spectra (primarily MIPAS and IASI).

The main changes with respect to MORSE v3 are

It requires an orbit of satellite data (MIPAS L1B or IASI L1C format) to be converted via an IDL L1C pre-processor into a suitable input format, and can then either be run with standard HITRAN spectroscopic input or pre-defined Look-Up Tables. The former is suitable for small-scale, investigative work while the latter is for more systematic large-scale processing.
