Abstract

Spectra from a 0.1-cm−1 resolution absolutely calibrated emission interferometer installed near Eureka, Northwest Territories, Canada (80°N, 86°W), at the Arctic Stratospheric Observatory are presented. The Michelson-type interferometer has a maximum path difference of 10 cm and uses a liquid-N2-cooled HgCdTe detector, which covers the spectral region from 650 to 1250 cm−1. Spectral intervals containing CO2, HNO3, and ozone have been modeled with a line-by-line radiative-transfer code and column amounts retrieved for the latter two constituents. The instrument and initial measurements are described.
