An one-dimensional variational retrieval system was developed to retrieve the clear sky atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles over land using the measurements of microwave humidity-temperature sounder (MWHTS) on Chinese FY-3C satellite. The system parameters are configured by analyzing the MWHTS channel properties and the climate condition over land. The retrieval results are evaluated by root mean square error (rmse) with respect to European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) reanalysis data. The validated results show that the maximum root mean square error of temperature and humidity are 2.59K and 11.87%, respectively. The retrieval results, compared with National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) 6 hour forecast profiles, show that the background profiles can affect the accuracy of retrieval profiles and FY-3C/MWHTS measurements can improve forecast precision of humidity. ?2016 IEEE.
