Abstract
A method is presented for the remote sounding of the mixing ratio of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from a satellite, including the inversion method and preliminary calculation results. The results indicate that the measurement accuracy of the mixing ratio of carbon dioxide in 0.25 ppm, calculated according to volume, in ground field of view of 1127 x 1162 km2 for an instrument such as the HIRS-2 on the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration meteorological satellite.
