Paper Abstract

The sensitivity of spectroscopic detection of low-lying gas clouds by an arbitrary spectrometer may be determined by simulating the observation using a high spectral resolution radiative transfer code. The instrumental characteristics may be superimposed on the simulation and the accuracy of the retrieval of the desired parameters may be estimated by use of the covariance matrix.
