  • The unique combination of global coverage, high precision, high vertical resolution, long-term stability and all-weather viewing of radio occultation will enhance the data sets of numerical weather prediction and improve the precision of Numeric Weather Prediction (NWP). And data assimilation requires preprocessing of the raw radio signals into the bending angles and refractivity. Then the atmospheric parameters such as temperature, pressure and humidity can be retrieved through data variational assimilation. The procedures for processing of radio occultation data, especially several important steps are introduced. And comparative analysis between these results and those from CDAAC shows that below the altitude of 30km, the relative errors of refractivity, pressure and humidity are within 2% and the deviation of temperature is below 2K. The results are also compared with the data from ERA-interim model of ECMWF and similar conclusion is obtained.
