Abstract. Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and methane (CH 4 ) are the two most important anthropogenic greenhouse gases. SCIAMACHY on ENVISAT is the first satellite instrument whose measurements are sensitive to concentration changes of the two gases at all altitude levels down to the Earth's surface where the source/sink signals are largest. We have processed three years (2003–2005) of SCIAMACHY near-infrared nadir measurements to simultaneously retrieve vertical columns of CO 2 (from the 1.58 μm… Expand

TLDR
The present paper shows the occurrence of the cloud-free data and the seasonal and inter-annual variation of XCO2 and XCH4 and suggests that the CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere have increased since 2009 with approximately 2 ppmv. Expand
