21 December 2000 JEM/SMILES limb-sounding of stratospheric trace species II: simulation results for JEM/SMILES observations
Author Affiliations +
JEM/SMILES (superconducting SubMIllimeter-wave Limb-Emission Sounder) is currently under development to demonstrate a submillimeter-wave sounder with extremely high sensitivity on the platform of the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM). In the submillimeter region, this is the first mission in space using a low-noise 4K cooled receiver, which is expected to give new observations for radicals in the stratosphere such as BrO. One of the most unique characteristics of the JEM/SMILES observation is its high sensitivity in detecting atmospheric limb emissions in the submillimeter wave range. The purpose of SMILES is global monitoring of the radicals which play important roles in the stratospheric system. We are now using the newly developed JEM/SMILES simulator to model observed spectra (including the characteristics of the SMILES sensor) and simulate the retrieval performance. Some preliminary results of the simulation are obtained in view of the scientific targets of JEM/SMILES.
