Solar occultation measurement of atmospheric species with short photochemical lifetimes poses some difficulties if sharp gradients are present in the species concentrations near sunrise/sunset conditions. These photochemically induced variations introduce asymmetries in the species distribution along the line of sight that need to be taken into account in the retrieval process in order to prevent inaccuracies. Correction factors derived from photochemical model calculations have been routinely applied to …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
