    Last update: 14 September 2016

    This data product describes localised vertical profiles of pressure, temperature and 15 target species (H2O, O3, HNO3, CH4, N2O, NO2, CFC-11, ClONO2, N2O5, CFC-12, COF2, CCL4, HCN, CFC-14, HCFC-22).

    It has a global coverage of the Earth 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.
