Abstract
As part of its activities to prepare for a long-term program in Earth Observation, the European Space Agency is carrying out studies with the objective to provide a background for and pave the way towards the definition of a spaceborne lidar system to monitor greenhouse gases and also atmospheric pressure and temperature. The Agency has initiated system and instrument studies to assess the potential to overcome the principle limitations of the existing passive sounding concepts by a Laser based instrument measuring the CO2 column/profile and extending the range of applications to the monitoring of greenhouse gases as CH4, N2O, ozone and also pressure and temperature profiles. The performance assessment results of such sensors and preliminary instrument concepts are discussed in this paper
