Abstract

We have developed a method to monitor the slant column density of nitrogen dioxide in the lower troposphere using a compact hyperspectral camera with a high spectral resolution of 1 nm at the full width half-maximum. Measurements of skylight spectra were conducted in wavelength regions of 460–490 nm and 550–610 nm to retrieve the slant column densities of nitrogen dioxide, in addition to water vapor and oxygen dimer. The results of ground-based measurements are shown for the cases of urban air pollution and aircraft emission near an airport runway.
