Abstract

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 7.1 data. Improvements with respect to the previous version 5.06 data include a new offset validation algorithm, addition of alignment matrix correction and scan mirror non-linearity correction in geolocation pointing, a new spike detection and correction algorithm, enabling of generation of Optimised Resolution (OR) products from Full Resolution (FR) products for the FR acquisition period, and an update of the format function for the number of sweeps per scan. Data are from 1st July 2002 to 8th April 2012.
