Temperature profile of HATPRO microwave radiometer at AWIPEV, Ny-Ålesund (2020)


The microwave radiometer at AWIPEV has seven V band (51.8-58.8 GHz) channels that are sensitive to atmospheric temperature (ta). These files contain ta as a function of measurement time and height above ground. The retrieved ta profile is based on multi-variate regression retrievals (see also Löhnert and Maier, 2012; doi:10.5194/amt-5-1121-2012; Nomokonova et al, 2019; doi:10.5194/acp-19-4105-2019). Provided uncertainties describe the expected standard error of ta as a function of height above ground. Note, that ta values are given for all available times so that it is up to the user to decide whether or not to use the values if quality flags are set. Additionally included are temperature, pressure and humidity at the instrument location as well quality flags characterizing the instrument and retrieval performance.
