Paper Abstract

The measurement of pollution in the troposphere (MOPITT) instrument is designed to globally map carbon monoxide and methane concentrations in the lower atmosphere from space. It will be launched on NASA's EOS-AM1 platform in mid-1998. The MOPITT engineering model has been undergoing tests at the University of Toronto Instrument Characterization Facility and the flight model will be tested in the same facility in a few months. The tests to be performed and some of the results form the engineering model are discussed.
