The Radio Occultation Processing Package - Multimission

Abstract:
ROPP is a software package which is intended to help users process, quality-control and prepare RO data for assimilation into NWP systems. It contains modules for general utilities (coordinate conversions, range checking etc), I/O (to allow the code to read data from a variety of sources, and to write data in netCDF and BUFR formats), preprocessing (from excess phase data to bending angles and refractivities), forward modelling (from model states to bending angles and refractivities) and 1D variational retrievals (which find the best fit to model backgrounds and observations). An applications module includes some diagnostics (such as tropopause and boundary layer heights). The software is available free of charge to users who agree to sign a licence for its use.
