Abstract
Regular, long-term, g1obalscale measurements of atmospheric minor gaseous and aerosol composition (MGAC) by means ofdifferent instruments (PHOENIX, OZONE-MIR, ISTOK-1, DOPI) are planned on board the SPECTR and PRIRODA modules of the Space Station MIR during 1995-1998. The main characteristics of these devices are given. The principal goals of the space experiments are: investigations of the spatial and temporal MGAC variations, comparisons of different space-borne atmospheric chemistry sensors and their intercalibration, validation of the space MGAC measurements using different ground-based station and aircraft data, and studies of the molecular absorption in the atmosphere aimed to enhance an accuracy of radiative transfer atmospheric models. Special attention is . devoted to radiative transfer model (line-mixing, line-shift, line-narrowing, Non-LTE effects). The numerical estimations of the errors of the MGAC vertical profile retrievals using different device data are carried out.
