Paper Abstract

The Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument will monitor the global concentrations of carbon monoxide and methane. It will be flown on the Earth Observing Satellite, EOS-AM1, scheduled for launch late in 1999. This paper describes the analysis of a twenty four hour data set that was recorded during the latter stages of testing at the University of Toronto Instrument Characterization Facility (ICF). This data set represents the best 'near real time' contiguous data available and it is being used to help understand the instrument behavior and characteristics, as well as with algorithm development with the goal of the University of Toronto team being to determine the gain, offset and noise parameters for all channels from the in-flight calibration system.
