Paper Abstract

This paper presents preliminary results on the effects of spectral resolution and atmospheric transmission on the recovery of species concentrations using Partial Least Squares procedures. The effects of different levels of random spectral noise on the recovery of concentrations are also explored. Calculations were limited to absorbance spectra, however, future effort is to be directed to more realistic passive sensing cases where radiative-transfer effects are taken into account.
