Abstract

MIPAS on ENVISAT was investigated regarding radiometric accuracy. Commissioning phase in-flight measurements of the MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) FT-spectrometer on ENVISAT (ENVIronmental SATellite) were analysed with a dedicated IDL tool. This included FT instrument characterisation as well as parts of level 1b processing, both independent from the nominal ESA data processing and in-flight characterisation. At the present state of analysis MIPAS was found to operate close to the physical sensitivity limit with radiometric errors not exceeding the specifications which, however, are not very demanding. The presentation will focus on detector non-linearity, micro-vibrations in the interferometer, and pointing jitter.
