With the advent of dedicated greenhouse gas space-borne spectrometers sporting high resolution spectra in the O2 A-band spectral region (755–774 nm), the retrieval of chlorophyll fluorescence has become feasible on a global scale. If unaccounted for, however, fluorescence can indirectly perturb the greenhouse gas retrievals as it perturbs the oxygen absorption features. As atmospheric CO 2 measurements are used to invert net fluxes at the land–atmosphere interface, a bias caused by fluorescence… CONTINUE READING
