Available Data

The MIPAS instrument measured in two time frames: from 2002 to 2004 in full resolution and from 2005 to 2012 in reduced resolution. Measurements were conducted in different modes covering different altitude ranges: Nominal (6 – 70 km), MA (18 – 102 km), NLC (39 – 102 km), UA (42 – 172 km), UTLS-1 (5.5 – 19 km), UTLS-2 (12 – 42 km), AE (7 – 38 km); for details, see Full Resolution Modes and Reduced Resolution Modes.
