Description
The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) is a
core European Space Agency (ESA) instrument on the ENVISAT spacecraft
(launched March 1, 2002). MIPAS is a high-resolution Fourier-transform
spectrometer designed to measure the concentration profiles of atmospheric
constituents on a global scale. MIPAS will observe the atmospheric
emissions from the Earth horizon (limb) throughout the mid-infrared
region, which will allow the simultaneous measurement of more than 20
trace gases, including the complete family of nitrogen-oxygen compounds
