We present an express method for the analysis of gas component in the Earth atmosphere in the infrared region for the thin optical layer approximation. The procedure of automatic fitting is checked using model as well as observed spectra. The accuracy of the method is estimated for the principal contaminating gases with the help of synthetic model spectra and Data Bank HITRAN 92. The method is shown to be promising in the global and local monitoring of gas pollutants in the Earth atmosphere.
