We describe the use of ground-based Fourier transform (FTIR) solar absorption spectroscopy to measure vertical columns of tropospheric and stratospheric trace gases. We focus on measurements made at the University of Toronto Atmospheric Observatory and the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory in the high Arctic, and introduce the new Canadian FTIR Observing Network.
