Abstract
A new approach for measuring high-altitude winds and temperatures has been developed that employs gas filter correlation radiometry from low Earth orbit. This approach would provide unprecedented observations of atmospheric dynamics from the lower stratosphere into the middle thermosphere. Our objective was to test the Doppler wind and temperature sounder (DWTS) retrievals (including uncertainties) using realistic middle atmosphere virtual input. We present several sampling scenarios for DWTS, and demonstrate its capability to retrieve planetary-scale variations in global temperature and vector winds.
