Atmospheric concentrations of trace-gases are retrieved from hyperspectral data using a blind source separation method. The algorithm relies on the assumption that the absorption cross sections of the gas components are weakly dependent on the overall atmospheric background. The unmixing of contributions from the logarithm of the spectral reflectance provides estimates of both individual trace-gas absorption cross sections and their concentrations. In the experimental analysis, nadir reflectances received by SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CHartographY are considered in two scenarios: the sulfur dioxide emissions from a volcanic eruption and the nitrogen dioxide production from anthropogenic pollution. In both cases, it is demonstrated that the algorithm performs very similarly to the Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy algorithm but with very little ancillary information.
