Abstract

Abstract A Michelson interferometer is under development as a payload of the ADEOS satellite. It will measure the spectra of terrestrial thermal infrared radiation with a nadir view in 700–3,000 cm −1 wavenumber region with an apodized resolution of 0.1 cm −1. Using those measured spectra, we will retrieve the altitude profiles of atmospheric temperature and the concentrations of greenhouse gases such as H 2O, CO 2, CH 4, N 2O, CO and O 3. Our final goal is to observe horizontal structure in greenhouse gas concentrations and to infer the global distribution of the emission sources of greenhouse gases.
