OH Solar Radiometer

Metadata Updated: July 17, 2020

The abundance of the hydroxyl radical, OH, determines the lifetime of methane and its global warming potential.  Despite the growing importance of methane and the need to quantify its removal rate from the atmosphere, there is currently no technique that can measure the column of OH from space. We propose to design, build and demonstrate the capability to measure the OH column using a new OH solar radiometer. Our objective is to demonstrate the capability to detect the column of OH with solar absorption. The project will design and test an OH detector using an existing sun tracker.
