Minimize MIPAS Quality Control Reports

Products Availability

This section provides information about the completeness of the latest MIPAS processed data sets (Level 0, Level 1b, and Level 2). Details about processed products, orbits with calibrations, instrument anomalies and missing measurements are given on a calendar basis for the full mission.


Products Anomalies

During the generation of Level 1b and Level 2 products, processing exceptions or anomalies were discovered. This section provides brief descriptions of the problems and the lists of the affected products.


Monthly Quality Reports

The main objective of the MIPAS Monthly Reports was to give, on a regular basis, the status of the instrument performance, data acquisition, results of anomaly investigations, calibration activities and validation campaigns. The Report is composed by the Instrument Data quality Evaluation and Analysis (IDEAS) team analysis results and inputs received from other groups working on MIPAS mission.


Monthly Maps

This section provides monthly mean maps of the main species measured by MIPAS. The following target parameters are considered: Temperature, H2O, O3, HNO3, CH4, N2O, NO2, CFC-11, ClONO2, N2O5, CFC-12. Maps are currently available only for a limited part of the mission.


Daily Quality Reports

The main objective of the MIPAS Daily Reports is to provide a daily monitoring of the mission; the daily reports allow a quick detection of any anomaly of the instrument performance or data processing. The monitoring and reporting is done using the QUADAS tool, which ingests the products into long term databases and generates html reports. The quality monitoring is implemented for all the levels of production and includes format, content and consistency checks.


Daily Maps

This section provides MIPAS Level 2 maps of daily mean at different isentropic levels. The following target parameters are considered: Temperature, H2O, O3, HNO3, CH4, N2O. Maps are currently available only for a limited part of the mission.
