Minimize Temperature, Pressure and Atmospheric Constituents Profiles (MIP_NL__2P)

Level 2 data are vertical profiles of the geo-physical quantities retrieved from the calibrated MIPAS spectra: pressure, Temperature, H2O, O3, HNO3, N2O, CH4 and NO2.

Minimize Performance and Quality

The monitoring of the MIPAS Level 2 products is performed though a number of activities summarized in different reports and maps generation.

The Quality Readme  file for MIPAS Level 2 processor ML2PP (Version 6)  products (latest version) provides details on the processor upgrades. The products are available to users via Fast Registration.

 

Daily Maps (NRT production)
These are MIPAS Daily Maps of mean distribution. The filtering criteria applied is: 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 version 5Statistics on filtered profiles for each target parameter are also provided (in table format). 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.

Daily Reports

The main objective of the MIPAS Daily Reports is to provide a daily monitoring of the mission and of the different data processing chains. The daily reports allow a quick detection of any anomaly in the instrument performance or data processing. The monitoring and reporting is made using the QUADAS tool which ingests the received products into long term databases and generates the html reports. The QUADAS quality monitoring for MIPAS is implemented for all the level of production and includes content and consistency checks.
  • The Repro Daily Reports were based on the MIPAS Level 2 products, processed with the  Instrument Processor Facility (IPF) version 5.05.
  • The NRT Daily Reports were based on the Near Real Time (NRT) production data, processed with the Instrument Processor Facility (IPF) MIPAS version 5.06.
  • The OFL Daily Reports were based on the OFF-line production, processed with the IPF MIPAS version 5.06 two weeks after the acquisition, using consolidated auxiliary data information.
  • The ORM Daily Reports are based on a small dataset used for Validation purposes. 
 
Monthly Reports
The main objective of the MIPAS Monthly Reports was to give, on a regular basis, the status of MIPAS instrument performance, data acquisition, results of anomaly investigations, calibration activities and validation campaigns. The MIPAS Monthly Report is composed of analysis results obtained by the Instrument Data quality Evaluation and Analysis (IDEAS) team, combined with inputs received from the different groups working on MIPAS operation, calibration, product validation and data quality. The following groups participate in the MIPAS Quality Working Group: ESRIN-IDEAS, ESOC, ESTEC, ABB BOMEM, Oxford University, IFAC-CNR, EADS-Astrium GmbH, Leicester University, LPMi, IMK, University of Bologna, ISAC, IAA, DLR, ECMWF. In addition, the group interfaces with the Atmospheric Chemistry Validation Team.
