Abstract
The Cross-track Infrared and Microwave Sounder Suite (CrIMSS) consists of a microwave radiometer and an infrared interferometer and is scheduled to fly on the NPP and NPOESS satellites. The sensors are designed for the accurate measurement of atmospheric pressure, temperature and moisture profiles. This paper presents an overview of the CrIMSS sensors and the retrieval algorithm. Validation of the algorithm with current satellite sounder data will also be presented.
