At present the authors are developing the system FASA, an airborne combination of a Fourier Transform Spectrometer
and an imaging system. The aim is to provide a system that is usable to investigate and monitor emissions
from natural disasters such as wild fires and from volcanoes. Besides temperatures and (burned) areas
FASA will also provide concentration profiles of the gaseous combustion products. These data are needed to improve
the knowledge of the effects of such emissions on the global ecosystem. The paper presents a description
of the instrumentation, the data evaluation procedure and shows first results of retrieval calculations based on
simulated spectra.
