MIPAS New Loop

MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) is a Fourier transforming infrared spectrometer on board of the Envisat payload. It is designed to acquire temperature and pressure profiles of numerous trace gases on a global scale and with a vertical resolution of 3-5 km. It provides a wealth of global parameters relevant for atmospheric chemistry, climatology and atmospheric/stratospheric change processes with a focus on stratospheric ozone.

The X-PReSS project is focused on:
- MIPAS L0 NRT (unconsolidated) dataset collection
- MIPAS L0 NRT dataset consolidation
- MIPAS ECONS L0 processing
