Short summary
Vertical aerosol extinction profile retrievals based on space-borne oxygen A-band observations benefit from high spectral resolution measurements. Radiative transfer calculations show that under most atmospheric conditions the information content of the retrievals increases with spectral resolution, despite a decreasing signal-to-noise ratio. The retrieval of lower tropospheric aerosol extinction over high albedo surfaces and of lofted biomass burning plumes becomes thus possible.
