CO2 and O3 Absorption Channels

Published: 30 June 2014

CO2 and Ozone channels are difficult to interpret directly because they are not "clean" channels that behave in a simple way.

In this way, it will be easier to understand how to interpret the meaning of these channels, and by extension, of all the other channels.
