The hyperspectral environmental suite (HES) simulation study using MM5 data is presented. It is found that HES enables monitoring the evolution of detailed temperature and moisture structures. The advantages of the future HES over the current GOES Sounder with spectral widths on the order of tens of wavenumber infrared channels are demonstrated. The results show that the retrieval accuracy of air temperature and water vapor is better than 1k for temperature and 10% for water vapor relative humidity.
