Title Initial assessment of the measurement and retrieval performance of the Upper-Atmospheric Terahertz Limb-Sounder LOCUS
Abstract This is the Final Report of the CEOI funded pathfinder project "LOCUS Preparatory Activities for EE-9". The aim of the study was to increase the Science Readiness Level of the ESA Earth Explorer 9 candidate mission LOCUS, a THz limb-sounder for the upper atmosphere. This is achieved by performing linear retrieval simulations to assess the retrieval errors of the mission. Crucially, this includes a first ever retrieval assessment of the key mesospheric - lower thermospheric species atomic oxygen from limb remote sensing measurements.
