Paper Abstract

Mitchel and O-Brien observed in 1989 that a passive satellite measurement using the oxygen A-band could exhibit a precision better than 1% when used to make a surface pressure measurement. We will present a design and performance simulation for a Fabry-Perot interferometer based instrument which should exceed this level of performance. The design is small, inexpensive and rugged.
