Paper Abstract

This paper will serve as an overview of the challenges to the recovery of information on atmospheric CO and CH4 from the measurements made by the MOPITT instrument that has been described by Drummond et al. It will also provide a context and introduction to several of the following papers that go into greater detail on particular topics, and outline plans for the data processing. Here we briefly outline the principles of correlation radiometry as used by MOPITT, and introduce the principles behind the retrievals. After noting plans for data processing, we discuss our approach to data validation, and the ability to see global distributions of CO in the MOPITT data.
