Abstract

We describe a new method for the measurement of molecular mixing ratios called Cross-Band Relative Absorption (CoBRA). The proposed method is based on relative measurements in different molecular bands referenced to a band of O2 with properly selected wavelength combinations providing high level of cancelation in temperature sensitivities. The CoBRA approach is particularly promising for satellite based remote sensing of molecular mixing ratios of the atmospheric trace gases. Very low temperature sensitivities and the potential of achieving close weighting function matching for the measurement and reference wavelengths are the main advantages of the method. The effectiveness of CoBRA approach is demonstrated for the retrieval of CO2 mixing ratios (XCO2) with application to the ASCENDS mission.
