Mesospheric retrievals from MIPAS

Abstract:
A linear algorithm has been developed to retrieve temperature, pressure and composition at lower mesospheric altitudes using the limb radiances from the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS). The algorithm is based on the assumption that at mesospheric heights, due to the thin optical path, the retrieval can be treated linearly. This avoids re-running the radiative transfer model and hence avoids the high CPU cost. A comparison against the operational level 2 (L2) products is given.
