ESA Greenhouse Gases Climate Change Initiative (GHG_cci): Column-averaged methane from GOSAT-2, generated with the SRFP (RemoTeC) full physics retrieval algorithm (CH4_GO2_SRFP), version 2.0.0
This dataset contains column-averaged dry-air mole fractions (mixing ratios) of methane (XCH4). It has been produced using data acquired from the Thermal and Near Infrared Sensor for Carbon Observations - Fourier Transform Spectrometer-2 (TANSO-FTS-2) Near Infrared (NIR) and Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) spectra, onboard the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT-2), using the Remote Sensing of Greenhouse Gases for Carbon Cycle Modeling (RemoTeC) SRON Full Physics (SRFP) retrieval algorithm. Results are provided for the individual GOSAT-2 spatial footprints.
These data have been produced as part of the European Space Agency (ESA)'s Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme.

|Title||The SRPR (Remotec) Full Physics retrieval algorithm|
|Abstract||The RemoTeC retrieval algorithm has been jointly developed at SRON and KIT to retrieve column-averaged methane and carbon dioxide, using a 'Full Physics' retrieval technique. Details of the technical aspects of the retrievals can be found in the ATBD (see documentation links)|
