Paper Abstract

The Measurement of Pollution in the troposphere (MOPITT) instrument is an eight-channel gas correlation radiometer to be launched on the Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra spacecraft in 1999. Its main measurement objectives are tropospheric carbon monoxide (CO) profiles and total column. This paper gives a detailed description of MOPITT CO retrieval algorithm, which derives total CO column and tropospheric CO mixing ratios at a number of atmospheric pressure levels from MOPITT radiance observations. Retrieval performance evaluation using simulated MOPITT data are discussed.
