IMK–IAA MIPAS version 8 data: retrieval, validation, and application (AMT/ACP inter-journal SI)(AMT/ACP inter-journal SI)
Editor(s): ACP-co-editors | Coordinators: Federico Fierli and Michael Pitts | Co-organizers: Gabriele Stiller, Thomas von Clarmann, and Bernhard Funke Special issue jointly organized between Atmospheric Measurement Techniques and Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics
The version 8 spectral data of the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS), released in January 2019, are supposed to be the final set. Besides the ORM reprocessed version 8 level-2 MIPAS data distributed by ESA, a research processor has been run at IMK and IAA to generate temperature and trace gas concentrations. The IMK–IAA data product includes a larger list of atmospheric constituents and covers a wider altitude range in the case of the special observation modes than the operational data. The processing is based on independent algorithms. This special issue collects articles which 1) document the retrieval strategies used to derive these distributions along with uncertainty estimates, 2) report validation studies, and 3) use the data to answer current questions in atmospheric research.
