comparison for high water case from the
ARM Southern Great Plains Climate Research Facility (SGP) .
The top panel is the downwelling radiance at the surface measured by the AERI instrument (U. of Wisconsin).
The bottom three panels are residual plots (AERI-LBLRTM) for
(a) LBLRTM v. 6.01 (CKD 2.4.1 with the HITRAN96 spectral line parameters),
(b) LBLRTM v12.2 (MT_CKD_2.5.2 continuum with the aer_v_3.2 updated spectral line parameters), and
(c) same as plot (b) except that the nominal HCOOH profile is increased by a factor of 9.
