Abstract

The development of the length-modulated radiometer (LMR), which is a new type of correlation radiometer for remote sounding, is described. Factors that affect the performance of the LMR are identified and, whenever possible, are minimized. Laboratory measurements of the radiometric response of a LMR filled with carbon monoxide are presented and compared with theoretical calculations. An analysis of the sources of error in these measurements and calculations is presented.
