The research deals with the design and the principle of operation of a panoramic Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer. In this work we give the main technical characteristics of the device and describe the visualization technique of the detected pollutant cloud. Thus, we carried out experimental studies into panoramic FTIR spectrometer and on its basis we examined dynamics of the pollutant cloud movement. Moreover, we estimated its angular and linear speed, and obtained data on diffusion distribution of the cloud. The analysis of the data collected on two panoramic FTIR spectrometers gives the possibility to estimate the size of the cloud and calculate the distance from each device. It is shown that results of a pollutant cloud detection by means of panoramic FTIR spectrometer can be used for forecasting the behavior of the investigated pollutants in the atmosphere.
