Full text not available from this repository.


The German-Dutch atmospheric science instrument SCIAMACHY on the European Earth observation mission ENVISAT provides new insights into the Earth's atmosphere. The book describes the SCIAMACHY mission in detail. It starts with the requirements for doing atmospheric science from space, followed by outlining the SCIAMACHY host, i.e. ENVISAT. Several chapters deal with SCIAMACHY instrument aspects: design, operations and calibration & monitoring. The system related part of the book finishes with a description of SCIAMACHY's first years in orbit. The second part of the book is devoted to the area of science data, including retrieval algorithms, data processing and product validation. SCIAMACHY's view of the Earth's atmosphere, a tour through the atmosphere from bottom to top presenting many exciting SCIAMACHY results, finally concludes the publication.
