Short summary
The shortwave infrared (SWIR) spectrometer module of the Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) is used to measure atmospheric CO and methane columns from space. A method has been developed and applied in an on-ground calibration campaign to characterize stray light in detail. An algorithm was then devised to correct in-flight observations in near-real time, reducing the stray-light signal sufficiently for accurate gas-column retrievals.
