The report reviews the commercially available and developing technologies for the application of remote sensing to the measurement of source emissions. The term 'remote sensing technology', as applied in the report, means the detection or concentration measurement of trace atmospheric species by sensing the interaction of propagating electromagnetic energy and the specific constituent along the path of propagation. Many remote monitoring techniques are applicable to source measurements. The source of the energy can be natural or designed as part of the system. In general, passive techniques are easier to use and less expensive to purchase and operate than are the active systems. Active systems are, in general, more specific and more sensitive than the passive systems. Some active techniques provide the added advantage of range resolution, which is preferred for some types of measurement applications.
