Isoline Retrieval uses supervised statistical classification to retrieve isolines from cross-track scanning or similar satellites. It contains software to generate training data using collocation or radiative transfer simulations, as well as routines to interpolate the final fields using a variation of multi-linear interpolation or kernel estimation. The currently-supported satellites are the Advance Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) series and, to a lesser extent, the Global Ozone Measurement Experiment (GOME). An ambitious researcher, however, could easily adapt the codes to a similar satellite.
highest is a program that efficiently finds the n highest (or lowest) numbers in a list of numbers on stdin. The traditional way of computing this using GNU sort should have a running time of O(n log n), where n is the number of numbers to check. Highest should have a running time of O(n log m), where m is the number of numbers you want to keep. A graph comparing the performance of highest to that of GNU sort is provided.
