Paper Abstract

The Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPJTF) instrument is a spaceborne gas correlation radiometer designed to measure CO and CH4 in the troposphere. This instrument has been selected to be on board of the Earth Observing System's first platform, EOS-AM, which is scheduled for launch in 1998. A maximum likelihood retrieval algorithm has been selected for the MOPITT CO measurement in clear sky conditions. Performance of the algorithm has been evaluated. This paper describes the algorithm and presents the preliminary results of numerical retrieval experiments.
