Short summary
Thermodynamic fields retrieved from orbiting infrared sounders use a derived set of measurements as their starting point, rather than the actual observations. This leads to problems with noise and sampling. We have developed a fast accurate model with a simple vertical representation of clouds in the atmosphere for use in retrievals, which allows us to use all the actual low-noise measurements at full resolution. These should eventually help produce more accurate weather forecasts.
