Remote sensing atmospheric trace gases with infrared imaging spectroscopy
Atmospheric pollution affects human health, food production, and ecosystem sustainability, causing environmental and climate change. Species of concern include nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide (SO2 ), and the greenhouse gases (GHG) methane (CH4 ) and carbon dioxide (CO2 ). Trace gas remote sensing can provide source detection, attribution, monitoring, hazard alerts, and air quality evaluation.
