Figure 7: Radial-interval mean intercomparisons for GPS RO observations and (a) colocated global analysis, and (b) colocated radiosonde observation temperature C) profiles. Red shading indicates where radial-interval mean temperature is less than the colocated profiles while the blue shading indicates where the observation temperature is greater than the colocated profiles. The -axis represents the radial distance (km) the mean profile while the -axis is vertical elevation (km).
