Paper Abstract

This study presents a new technique for the retrieval of Carbon Monoxide and Methane effective optical depths using upwelling infrared emission spectra from high spectral resolution Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) data. Also presented is a technique for deriving mean column mixing ratios from these effective optical depths. Results are presented from aircraft flights of the Scanning-High-resolution Interferometer Sounder (S-HIS) and the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Airborne Sounder Testbed - Interferometer (NAST-I). Case study results are presented from the SAFARI 2000 experiment in Southern from the CLAMS experiment on the mid-Atlantic coast of the United States.
