Abstract
An alternative algorithm is being developed to retrieve ozone vertical distribution information from the OMPS/LP sensor which will be manifested on the upcoming NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) platform in late 2011. In contrast to most limb sensors retrieval methods, the proposed algorithm will forgo the spherical symmetry assumption for the atmospheric structure, and will attempt to simultaneously retrieve the ozone distribution in both the vertical and the along-track directions. The paper describes the two-dimensional forward model as well as the methods which have been developed to simultaneously retrieve a whole orbit of data. Sample retrieval results are shown to illustrate the technique.
