Abstract

The feasibility of observing air pollutants from satellite-borne sensors has been investigated. Radiative transfer calculations, using both line-by-line and band-model methods, have been made to establish the signal changes that originate from the presence of various amounts of pollutants in the atmosphere. The effect of interfering species has been considered.
