Abstract A laser transmitter tuned by means of a lithium niobate optical parametric oscillator was employed to demonstrate the capability for remote measurement of gaseous pollutants in the atmosphere. Measurements of methane were obtained continuously over an 18-hour period with a precision of better than 0.06 parts per million. The long path measurements of methane were in excellent agreement with a Bay Area Pollution Control District point monitoring station. Capabilities of the tunable laser transmitter to measure other molecules, as well as atmospheric temperature, are discussed. (Author)
