Level 1b consolidated, near-real time and reprocessed data from the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) instrument on the ENVISAT satellite operated by ESA. These data are Instrument Processor Facility (IPF) version 5 data. Original release is version 5.02 with bug fixes implemented in versions 5.05 and 5.06. Improvements with respect to the previous version 4.67 data include trunctation of the interferogram at 8 cm to avoid undersampling for the Optimised Resolution (OR) mission, improved engineering heights calculation, calculation of quadratic terms for spectral calibration included in output products, and addition of L0 house keeping data packets. Data are from 1st July 2002 to 8th April 2012.
