Short summary
Global Positioning System (GPS) radio occultation (RO) signals can be inverted to provide profiles of temperature. Earlier inversion method that used geometric optics were observed to have large errors in the few kilometers of the atmosphere. Different theoretical methods were developed to address the deficiencies of the GO methods. In this study, we implement the full-spectrum inversion (FSI) method for inversion of GPSRO signal received by a receiver placed on an aircraft.
