Figs. 1+2: FTIR Container at Esrange (December 1994).
Since winter 1989/90 a ground-based FTIR spectrometer was operated each winter at Kiruna.
While at the beginning the instrument was operated on a campaign basis, a Bruker 120HR is operated continuously at IRF Kiruna since March 1996.
This is a collaboration with IRF Kiruna and the University of Nagoya.
Campaigns participated in are:
|1989/90||CHEOPS III||Esrange near Kiruna||MIPAS-LM|
|1990/91||Esrange near Kiruna||MIPAS-LM|
|1991/92||EASOE||Esrange near Kiruna||MIPAS-LM|
|1992/93||Esrange near Kiruna||MIPAS-LM|
|1993/94||SESAME I||Esrange near Kiruna||Bruker 120 M|
|1994/95||SESAME III||Esrange near Kiruna||Bruker 120 M|
|1995/96||Esrange near Kiruna||Bruker 120 M|

Since February 1999 a Bruker 120M is operated in collaboration with Izaña Atmospheric research center (IZO) of AEMet on Tenerife Island. As well as the Kiruna instrument it is operated within the NDACC network on a long-term basis.
