ENVISAT MIPAS

MIPAS Localized calibrated emission spectra (ENVISAT.MIP.NL__1P)


This data product covers the geolocated, spectrally and radiometrically calibrated limb emission spectra in the 685-2410 cm-1 wave number range. It comprises 5 bands: 685-970 cm-1, 1020-1170 cm-1, 1215-1500 cm-1, 1570-1750 cm-1, 1820-2410 cm-1) and covers the following spatial ranges:

  • Tangent height range: 5 to 50 km
  • Pointing range: (Azimuth pointing range relative to satellite velocity vector): 160 deg - 190 deg (rearward looking); 75 deg - 110 deg (sideward looking)

The instantaneous field of view (IFOV) is 0.05230 (elevation) x 0.5230 (azimuth). The length of measurement cell for an individual height step is approximately 300-500 km (dependent on tangent height and optical properties of the atmosphere). The spectral resolution spans from 0.030 to 0.035 cm-1, with a radiometric sensitivity of 4.2 to 50 nW / cm-1 / sr / cm2.
