Paper Abstract

The Solar-Occultation FTS for Inclined-orbit Satellite (SOFIS) is an instrument for the next atmospheric remote sensing project proposed by the Environment Agency of Japan. The grating infrared spectrometer used by its predecessors (ILAS/ILAS-II) will be replaced with a Fourier-transform spectrometer (FTS) for higher spectral resolution. The three- dimensional distributions of greenhouse gases as well as those of atmospheric species related to stratospheric ozone depletion will be measured by solar occultation from an inclined-orbit satellite. A preliminary study was carried out to clarify the underlying problems in satellite-borne FTS measurement and to seek a proper method for processing the FTS data recorded by SOFIS.
