Microwave Termperature Profiler (MTP) for HIAPER

Michael J. Mahoney & UCAR/NCAR-Earth Observing Laboratory
MTP measures thermal emission from oxygen molecules between 56 and 59 GHz. A statistical method is used to retrieve the physical temperature profile above, below and at flight level. MTP is a scanning radiometer that observes emitted radiance (brightness temperature) at 56.363 GHz, 57.612 GHz, 58.363 GHz. It collects measurements at 10 viewing angles between +/- 80 degrees from horizontal. It is housed in a PMS canister with a modified fairing which has a transparent...
