Nadir observations in the shortwave infrared channels of SCIAMACHY onboard the ENVISAT satellite can be used to derive infor- mation on CO, CH4, N2O, CO2, and H2O. BIRRA (Beer InfraRed Retrieval Algorithm) is a least squares fit of the measured radiance with respect to molecular column densities and auxiliary parameters, nb. surface albedo, baseline and slit function width. Here special features of the code are shown along with results of carbon monoxide retrievals from SCIAMACHY near infrared nadir observations. In particular intercomparisons with other SCIAMACHY Infrared Nadir retrievals and with AIRS (Atmospheric Infrared Sounder onboard NASA-EOS-Aqua) will be presented.
