Information from a ground-based passive remote-sensing system that measures ozone profile concentrations with a moderate 4-cm-1 spectral resolution is evaluated. A theoretical study of the best choice for the wave numbers and zenith angles for the line of sight is presented. The superimposed water emission is analyzed for the selected wave numbers, and possibilities of separating the contributions of water and ozone to the radiance received are studied. Tropospheric and stratospheric ozone can be sounded by appropriate selection of the experimental conditions.
