Publication Details

Cortesi, U., Lambert, J. C., De Clercq, C., Blumenstock, T., Godin-Beekmann, S. & Jones, N. B. (2007). Geophysical validation of MIPAS-ENVISAT operational ozone data. Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, 7 (18), 4807-4867.


The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS), on-board the European ENVIronmental SATellite (ENVISAT) launched on 1 March 2002, is a middle infrared Fourier Transform spectrometer measuring the atmospheric emission spectrum in limb sounding geometry. The instrument is capable to retrieve the vertical distribution of temperature and trace gases, aiming at the study of climate and atmospheric chemistry and dynamics, and at applications to data assimilation and weather forecasting.
