Remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases form geostationary orbit has unique scientific value and unique measurement interpretation advantages. This paper describes a proposed measurement method and analysis strategy for inferring CO concentration in the troposphere. Gas filter correlation radiometry is found to be very well suited for remote sensing using full globe images from geostationary orbit. Strengths of the gas correlation technique include measurement efficiency, effective high spectral resolution, excellent spectral calibration, manageable data rate, and measurements over the full spectral bandpass simultaneously.
