MIPAS maps of mean distribution: 25-MAR-2012

Measurement Mode: Nominal Mode (7 - 72 km)

Processor version: MIPAS/5.06-N

Note to users

The following filtering criteria were applied: non convergent profiles or retrievals with chi-2 exceeding a predefined limit are removed from the maps.
The filtering criteria are explained in the Readme file for V5, available here.
Statistics on filtered profiles for each target parameter are provided in the table below.
The retrieved geo-pysical products are interpolated at different Teta levels.
The data is then interpolated to a fixed Lat/Lon grid using a weighted distance average.
Note that Upper and Middle Atmosphere measurements are only retrieved up to 70km.
