Validation data for the IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer) satellite instrument. IASI was a moderate resolution (0.25cm^-1) Fourier Transform spectrometer which was scheduled for flight in 2002 on the European METOP satellite. IASI delivered vertical profiles of temperature and humidity data with a resolution of 1km. VIRTEM was an EU project to validate the instrumentation and retrieval methods to be used on IASI. This dataset contains Atmospheric profiles, Ozonesonde and Mircowave radiometer measurements.
