Short summary
The column-averaged dry-air mole fraction of CO2 has been retrieved from high-resolution solar absorption spectra from two different measurement networks. We investigate the differences between these retrievals and find that their sensitivity differs greatly. As a result the direct comparison of the two retrievals remains challenging.
