Isoline Retrieval uses supervised statistical classification to retrieve isolines from cross-track scanning or similar satellites. It contains software to generate training data using collocation or radiative transfer simulations, as well as routines to interpolate the final fields using a variation of multi-linear interpolation or kernel estimation. The currently-supported satellites are the Advance Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) series and, to a lesser extent, the Global Ozone Measurement Experiment (GOME). An ambitious researcher, however, could easily adapt the codes to a similar satellite.
libagf is a library of variable-bandwidth kernel estimators for statistical classification, PDF estimation, and interpolation/non-linear regression using both Gaussian kernels and k-nearest-neighbours. Statistical classification allows the use of a pre-trained model for considerable speed gains. Also included are clustering algorithms. It includes command line executables as well as easy-to-use libraries.
libpetey is a small scientific/numerical computation library. It includes the following components: templated sorting routines; templated binary tree classes; a templated linked-list class; routines for finding the k-least and k-greatest elements in an array; "supernewton", a one-dimensional root-finding algorithm based on cubic interpolation; a class for working with dates and times; a function for easy parsing of command line options; datasets (the beginnings of a data-representation paradigm that generalizes matrices but is mainly useful for n-dimensional linear interpolation); and sparse matrix library including command-line utilities for sparse matrix multiplication and eigenvalue decomposition as well as a sparse matrix calculator.
Sea Ice is software for modeling the microwave emissivity of sea ice. It includes two plane-parallel radiative transfer models: a Monte Carlo ray tracing simulation that models ridged ice, and thermodynamic models that can be used to generate input to the emissivity models in the form of temperature and salinity profiles. It is written in C++ and Interactive Data Language (IDL). It has been used to generate results for several papers on sea ice emissivity.
