Hi Stephan, I am using Rayleigh jeans. As I need to activate cloud box in some instances.
I understand that RJBT instead of Planck can cause a dip in the brightness temperatures. Is this the only factor that can cause a bias, or does pressure levels, lat/lon grid resolution also cause a bias?

Dear Renish, do you use Planck or Rayleigh-Jeans brightness temperature? For Planck, you should indeed approach the ambient temperature if you go low enough.
