20 October 1999 Channel radiance calculations for MOPITT forward modeling and operational retrievals
Author Affiliations +
The MOPITT (Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere) instrument, to be launched on the Earth Observing System Terra platform, employs gas-correlation spectroscopy to measure profiles of tropospheric carbon monoxide and the total column of methane. The modeling of the instrument, and the associated radiative transfer, comprise the forward model employed in the retrieval calculations. The MOPITT forward model has been implemented through a hierarchy of radiation codes whose salient features are reviewed here.
