Carbon monoxide (CO) is a marker of the atmospheric pollution caused by fires and combustion engine emissions. The regular monitoring of the CO content in the atmosphere is needed to control air quality. In this work, the results of CO atmospheric total column retrievals from the solar spectra recorded by Fourier -transform spectrometers at the St. Petersburg (59.88° N, 29.83° E) and Kourovka (57.038° N, 59.545° E) stations are presented. The impact of differences in CO absorption line parameters in modern spectroscopic databases on the accuracy of the CO atmospheric total column retrieved from high resolution spectra is estimated.
