Remote sensing of air pollution was made using a scanning spectrometer (Rose system) and a Michelson interferometer. Both systems were for transmission measurements over nominal path lengths of one and two miles and for stack emission measurements. A comparison shows that the spectra of both instruments are of the same quality. A comparison of both instruments is made and the advantages and disadvantages are cited. In addition to the above measurements, the ROSE system alone was used to measure the pollution from an extended source (oil refinery) over a path length of 1/4 mile. All of the spectra were analyzed and a number of pollutants were identified.
