A Tool to Estimate Land Surface Emissivities at Microwave frequencies (TELSEM)
has been developed for use with the Radiative Transfer for the Television and
infrared Observation satellite operational Vertical Sounder (RTTOV) model. Its
objective is to provide a good estimate of the microwave surface emissivity to
improve the retrieval of atmospheric profiles or the direct assimilation of radiances
