Short summary
Because a satellite channel’s ability to resolve hyperspectral data varies with height, an improved channel selection method is proposed based on information content. An improved channel selection scheme (ICS) for a hyperspectral atmospheric infrared sounder using AIRS data based on layering is proposed. The accuracy of the retrieval temperature is improved by using our method, which means the ICS method selected in this paper is feasible and shows great promise for various applications.
