A technique for calculating ballistic density from Satellite Infrared Spectrometer (SIRS) radiance data is described. A model experiment in which radiance values are calculated from the temperature sounding is used to verify the technique. In a second experiment real-time SIRS radiances were used with synoptic and geographically-consistent soundings for evaluation of the ballistic density. For the limited data sample tested, the technique of computing ballistic densities from satellite radiances is capable of matching those computed from conventional radiosondes. (Author)
