  • Global evaluation of SCIAMACHY and MOPITT carbon monoxide column differences for 2004-2005
    A. T. J. de Laat, A. M. S. Gloudemans, I. Aben, H. Schrijver
    Abstract/Article: J. Geophys. Res, 115, D06307, doi:10.1029/2009JD012698, 2010
    Method: Global comparison of SCIAMACHY and MOPITT CO column measurements for the years 2004 and 2005. Quantitative comparisons have been performed taking the effects of instrument noise errors, vertical sensitivities via the averaging kernel and a priori, different spatio-temporal sampling and clouds into account using simulated CO profiles from the TM4 model
