Title: Detection of climate forcing using emission spectra
Authors: Goody, Richard

Issue Date: 1995
Citation: Earth Observation and Remote Sensing
Abstract: We discuss the use of thermal emission spectra recorded by satellites to construct climate indices that can detect the evolution of a specific climate forcing in a time series. The two important issues are selectivity against climate forcings other than one that is sought, and sensitivity to the required forcing. We show that indices with selectivity can be found, and that their sensitivity can be high.
