Paper Abstract

Analytical procedure to derive the ozone concentration profile from the analysis of the high-resolution spectrum data as observed by a space FTS sensor such as Interferometric Monitor for Greenhouse gases (IMG) onboard Advanced Earth Observing Satellite (ADEOS) has been presented. In the procedure, Jacobian matrices were re-calculated for each spectrum considering the cloud top temperature in the instantaneous field of view (IFOV) of the FTS sensor. That was because these cloud parameters seriously affect the elements of the Jacobian matrices sometimes causing the change of the sign of the elements. This method has been applied to the analysis of IMG data that were observed during the northern hemispheric ozone hole like event occurred in 1997 spring. It has been found that the usage of the precise instrumental line shape (ILS) of the sensor is very important to improve the vertical resolution of retrieval by loosening the retrieval constrains.
