Short summary
The column averaged dry-air mole fractions of CO2 and CH4 (xCO2 and xCH4) of the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) are retrieved from solar absorption Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometry. At the Ny-Ålesund site in the high arctic, however, during the polar night no solar measurements are possible. Here, we present a new method to measure xCO2 and xCH4 using the moon as a light source in the near-infrared and present the complete seasonal cycles of xCO2 and xCH4.
