Commercial Fourier transform based FTIR spectroradiometers can be used in an easy way as ground-based remote sensing systems. Information of the ozone column can be obtained from the spectral IR radiance in the 900-1200 cm-1 range. Tropospheric and stratospheric ozone are sounded by an appropriate selection of the experimental conditions. A theoretical study of the best choice for the wavenumbers of zenith angles for the direction of view is presented. The problem of the superimposed water emission is analyzed for the selected wavenumbers. Finally, some experimental results are presented, with a fast method to obtain the water and ozone columns from a spectral radiance spectrum.
