Short summary
An algorithm for retrieval of vertical profiles of CO2 from ground-based spectra is described. Retrieval of CO2 vertical profiles from would be very beneficial for carbon cycle studies and the validation of satellite measurements. There are approximately 3 degrees of freedom for the CO2 profile. The accuracy of retrievals of CO2 from the spectral band used is limited by small errors in the calculated spectrum. Ongoing research is needed and described.
