Paper Abstract

Ultra-spectral atmospheric remote sounding has been under development since the late 1970's. It has evolved through a series of aircraft experiments into the operational space-borne system that we enjoy today. In this paper the background and evolution of the ultra-spectral remote sounding program is reviewed. Results from airborne and polar satellite ultraspectral instruments are presented to illustrate the improved atmospheric remote sounding capability provided by these instruments. Ground-based measurements with the Geostationary Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (GIFTS) are presented to illustrate the "state of the art" in imaging spectrometry and its potential for greatly improved ultra-spectral remote sounding from future polar and geostationary satellites.
