  • Analysis Of The RARMA Model

    The results are shown in the form of biases (GMI-CRTM TBs) before (unadjusted) and after (adjusted) applying the RARMA algorithm. The bias histograms seem to appear more similar to a Gaussian distribution in the figure. Eventually, bias exists for all of the GMI channels. Comparatively, a small bias is seen on channel 12, which is in the water vapor absorption line (183.31±3 GHz). One can see that the peak of the distribution for all channels has come closer to zero after applying the RARMA…
