Abstract
The applicability of a high resolution infrared heterodyne radiometer for atmospheric temperature profiling is considered. Upwelling radiation at the 754.321 cm -1 (10° er 0-0110) and the 945.976 cm-1 (00°1-1000) rotational-vibrational lines of CO2 are monitored by a six IF channel infrared heterodyne radiometer with spectral specificity between 0.002 and 0.012 cm-1. Computer simulated retrievals have been carried out which indicate a maximum temperature inaccuracy of 3.5 K for vertical profiles between ground level and 50 km and a system integration time of 8 seconds.
