Abstract

High resolution Fourier transform near IR solar spectra are used to estimate the column-averaged dry-air mole fraction DMF of CO2 and variations in the atmosphere. The preliminary retrieval results for CO2 and variations in the area of Hefei, China, are presented, and the underlying error sources are also analyzed. Both a forward analysis and an inversion algorithm are included in the retrieval. The forward analysis uses the modeled atmospheric transmittance to line-by-line LBL convolute the instrument line shape function. The influences of the temperature, pressure, humidity, and a priori gases are considered in the atmospheric transmittance model. The inversion algorithm is based on the nonlinear iterative and nonlinear least squares spectral fitting, which is used to obtain and which represent vertical column density of CO2 and , resp

Furthermore, the is also retrieved for converting the VCDs into DMFs. DMFs are final products of data analysis. The inversion results can clearly resolve the tiny variations of CO2 and under strong atmospheric background. Spectral fitting residuals for both and are less than 0.5%. Finally, CO2 and diurnal variations are investigated based on a typical observation. About 2 ppm amplitude for diurnal variations and less than 15 ppb amplitude for are observed.
