Abstract
The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) was launched in early May 2002. The temperature and humidity fields retrieved from this new high-spectral resolution sounder will be used for numerical weather prediction and climate change studies. This paper presents a comparisons between observed AIRS spectra and spectra computed from profiles using the worldwide radiosonde network, as well as spectra computed from the ECMWF (European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasts) model fields.
