This paper presents a preliminary study of a new inversion strategy combining the method of adjoint applied to the wide-angle parabolic equation and the method of split-step wavelet for tropospheric refractivity estimation. Our main motivation is to use a gradient based optimization method to infer atmosphere from radio-frequency data, in an effort towards a real-time accurate refractivity-from-clutter system. The proposed adjoint formulation is validated with the method of finite differences. The validation setup is developed for inversion using a tomographic approach.
