Observations of carbon monoxide (CO) retrieved from Scanning Imaging Absorption SpectroMeter for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY), Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT), and Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) are compared in this article. To better validate the retrieved data from SCIAMCHY, AIRS, and MOPITT, six surface stations at different locations and with various elevations were chosen. The results show these three instruments can all reflect CO spatial distribution well and show same temporal variations of CO concentration as well as six surface station measurements. MOPITT and AIRS have similar retrieval results with correlation coefficients being mostly over 0.70, except for a sixth field station on Crozet Island. The three satellites all have the ability to monitor CO concentration change on land, but SCIAMCHY results show a relatively larger bias than MOPITT and AIRS in low CO concentration areas because of systematic error.

    Methane (CH4) is an important greenhouse gas because it has 25 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide (CO2) by mass over a century. Recent calculations suggest that atmospheric CH4 emissions have been responsible for approximately 20% of Earth's warming since pre-industrial times....
