Accurate and timely monitoring of atmospheric constituents is the prerequisite for mastering the distribution characteristics of atmospheric constituents, studying the genetic mechanism of the forming of atmospheric pollution, and effectively preventing and controlling air pollution. Among various observation methods of atmospheric constituents, remote sensing monitoring technology can provide the long-distance and real-time observation, have the ability of rapid analysis of diverse atmospheric mixtures, and obtain stereoscopic spatiotemporal distribution of target constituents without sampling. There are various methods and instruments for remote sensing monitoring of atmospheric constituents, and each of them has its unique advantage, covering a multiple gases and aerosol. According to the difference of the height of the remote sensing platform, it can be divided into ground platform, aviation platform and space platform. Remote sensing technology is widely applied in the field of atmospheric constituents monitoring, and meets the observational requirements for a variety of purposes. This paper introduced the remote sensing monitoring methods and platforms of atmospheric constituents and summarized their application examples for different purposes. It also outlined the future development direction of remote sensing methods in atmospheric constituents’ observation.
