Abstract

The measurements performed by MIPAS/ENVISAT at the original nominal spatial and spectral resolution have been analysed with the 2-D analysis system GMTR [Carlotti et Al., Appl. Opt. Feb. (2006)] in order to obtain the 2-D fields of pressure, temperature and VMR of H2O, O3, HNO3, CH4, N2O and NO2. The GMTR algorithm has been developed in the frame of an ESA supported study and is distributed as part of the BEAT tools (http://envisat.esa.int/services/beat/). The obtained results and a comparison with the ESA Level 2 MIPAS products will be presented and discussed.
