Abstract

Simulations of the performance and remote sensing capabilities of an airborne solar spectrometer designed to measure atmospheric spectral extinction over the approximately 300-nm to 1020-nm range with a resolution approximately 1 nm are presented. The simulations address both instrument design options and the problem of retrieving atmospheric spectral optical depth and extinction profiles for various atmospheric conditions. Results are presented for output signals, signal-to-noise ratio, and retrieval problems.
