Paper Abstract

The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) flying on NASA's EOS-AQUA platform has channels sensitive to both sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitric acid (HNO3). We have developed a simple regression retrieval for both of these gases that illustrates the potential for AIRS, and other hyperspectral sounders, to retrieve these two gases. We have cross-validated the SO2 retrievals to those from the OMI instrument flying on the EOS AURA platform. Similarly, we have cross-validated the HNO3 retrievals with limb retrievals of HNO3 by from MLS instrument, also flying on the AURA platform.
