Joint retrieval of CO and vibrational temperature from MIPAS-envisat

Abstract:

MIPAS is a limb viewing fourier transform spectrometer operating in the infra-red. It scans the tangent altitude range 6-68 km at a vertical resolution of approximately 3km. CO has various natural and anthropogenic sources including forest fires and industry. In the troposphere, CO is the main sink of the principal oxidising agent - the hydroxyl radical - and so reduces its capacity for the removal of other atmospheric pollutants. In the stratosphere, its intermediate lifetime makes it useful...
