Molecular radiative properties and applications to atmospheric remote sensing and radiative transfer. Measurements and theoretical analysis of molecular line parameters and absorption cross-sections for pure rotational (microwave), vibration-rotation (infrared) and electronic transitions (ultraviolet-visible); experimental and theoretical studies on atmospheric continua and pressure-broadening including line-mixing and non-Voigt line shapes. Applications to satellite, airborne and ground-based atmospheric remote sensing: radiative transfer and spectroscopy issues, including those related to atmospheric composition measurements from satellite instruments (e.g. ACE, TES, MLS, MIPAS, SCIAMACHY, OMI, SMILES, GOSAT, OCO-2 and more) and operational meteorological satellite instruments (such as AIRS, GOME-2, IASI…) and future missions.
