Abstract

We built a differential optical absorption spectroscopy system to measure near-surface CO 2 absorption in the atmosphere using a nanosecond white light continuum. The white light laser can cover wavelengths ranging from 420 to 2400 nm, where the CO 2 and H 2 O absorption lines are located. At an optical path length of 568 m, it was possible to evaluate atmospheric CO 2 concentration from absorption bands of CO 2 and H 2 O in the vicinity of 2000 nm detected by broadband white light simultaneously.
