Paper Abstract

Recent developments in atmospheric monitoring with a ground- based FTIR spectrometer are presented. Several aspects of the inversion method for the retrieval of temperature and humidity profiles from IR emission spectra are reported. The potential of the remote sensing method is analyzed in the context of three specific applications: As an aid for predictions of atmospheric transmittances, in support to the remote detection of atmospheric pollutants (CFCs) and to the evaluation of cloud parameters.
