A mathematical method for inversion in atmospheric remote sensing
Margerum, Eugene A.
Research noteAbstract: A method is developed for solving Fredholm integral equations of the first kind. The method is particularly intended for use in obtaining atmospheric profiles from remotely sensed radiance measurements and should be generally useful for numerical inversion problems where the solution can be expressed as a linear superposition. Some discussion of general mathematical and physical considerations is also given.
