MOPITT ATBD - Retrieval of Carbon Monoxide Profiles and Column Amounts of Carbon Monoxide and Methane (Level 1 - 2)
Entry ID: 01-mopitt-99

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The intent of the MOPITT ATBD is to describe the algorithm involved in
converting the Level 1 MOPITT radiances into the Level 2 products of retrieved
CO profiles and column amounts of CO and CH 4.

MOPITT CO measurements primary objective is to obtain profiles with a
resolution of 22 km horizontally, 3 km vertically and with an accuracy of 10%
throughout the troposphere. A CO total column amount ... View entire text
