Multispectral Orbital Retrieval using Sequential Estimation
These web-pages describe MORSE v4.
(MORSE v3 documentation can be found [here])
MORSE v4 is a Fortran90 program developed under NCEO
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.
- Complete recoding from F77 to F90
- Extension to allow nadir-viewing retrievals (ie IASI)
- Retrievals for complete orbits rather than single profiles
