Short summary
In this paper, we compare greenhouse gas measurements from two novel open-path instruments to determine how similarly they measure the same gas concentration. We do this over an outdoor path, so the two instruments measured the same outdoor air. We found that the two instruments agree extremely well, so in the future if the instruments were at two different locations we could reliably compare their measurements to determine differences between the two places.
