Description

This MIPAS Level 2 data product describes localised vertical profiles of pressure, temperature and 21 target species (H2O, O3, HNO3, CH4, N2O, NO2, CFC-11, ClONO2, N2O5, CFC-12, COF2, CCL4, HCN, CFC-14, HCFC-22, C2H2, C2H6, COCl2, CH3Cl, OCS and HDO).

It has a global coverage of Earth's stratosphere and mesosphere at all latitudes and longitudes. The vertical resolution of p, T and VMR profiles varies from 3 to 4 km, whereas the horizontal resolution is approximately 300 km to 500 km along track. This depends on the tangent height range and optical properties of the atmosphere. Auxiliary data include spectroscopic data, microwindows data, validation data, initial guess p, T and trace gas VMR profiles.

The resolution range of the dataset is: 3 km (vertical) x 30 km (horizontal) at the tangent point.

The latest reprocessed MIPAS Level 2 data (v8.22) is available as Standard (MIPAS_2PS) and Extended (MIPAS_2PE) products, both in NetCDF format.

Please refer to the MIPAS L2 v8.22 Product Quality Readme file for further details.
