Estimation of Atmospheric Species Concentrations from Remote Sensing Data


A basic problem in the interpretation of atmospheric remote sensing data is to estimate species concentration distributions. Typical remote sensing data involve a field of view that moves across the region and represent integrated species burdens from the ground to the altitude of the instrument. The estimation problem arising from this special measurement configuration is solved based on the partial differential equation for atmospheric diffusion and Wiener-Hopf theory. The estimation of the concentration distribution downwind of a hypothetical continous ground-level source of pollutants is studied numerically.
