With the advent of dedicated greenhouse-gas space-borne spectrometers sporting high resolution spectra in the O₂ A-band spectral region (755-774 nm), the retrieval of chlorophyll fluorescence has become feasible on a global scale. If unaccounted for, however, fluorescence can indirectly perturb the greenhouse gas retrievals as it perturbs the oxygen absorption features. As atmospheric CO₂ measurements are used to invert net fluxes at the land-atmosphere interface, a bias caused by fluoresc...Expand abstract
