Short summary
Atmospheric methane abundances as function of altitude derived from the thermal infrared band of the Japanese GOSAT satellite show a systematic bias. It has been shown that simple correction schemes can lead to undesired consequences. This paper discusses a more elaborate approach, resulting in methane profiles that fall within 2 % of independent reference measurements and models. This is true for different scenes around the globe and over the full altitude range.
