Abstract: Solving underdetermined and ill-posed inverse problems is a common theme in geophysics, image processing and many other fields dealing with remote sensing. Although the problems vary widely, many similar techniques are used across disciplines. The OSIRIS aerosol inversion makes use of linear techniques to explore the information content of the measurements and sensitivity to various retrieved quantities. This information is used to develop a non-linear inversion technique to retrieve stratospheric aerosol profiles.
