Abstract
The Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere-Aircraft (MOPITT-A) instrument is being constructed at the University of Toronto, as a primary data validation tool for the Terra based MOPITT instrument. MOPITT-A is designed to operate aboard a NASA ER-2 research aircraft and as such must be rugged and field serviceable while maintaining the same characteristics as the satellite instrument. The resulting instrument is a hybrid of flight space components with commercial devices. Calibration data generated by both instruments, at the U of T Instrument Calibration Facility (ICF) will play a key role in data validation.
