This paper discusses the basic concept of the calibration of the SCIAMACHY instrument and remaining open issues. SCIAMACHY is a scanning Limb/Nadir spectrometer covering the wavelength range from 212 nm to 2386 nm. It was launched on-board ENVISAT in February 2002. In general the instrument performance is excellent: It per-5 forms as tested on ground and(More)
On 1st of March 2002 ENVISAT with SCIAMACHY on-board was launched successfully in a sun-synchronous polar orbit. SCIAMACHY is a passive remote sensing instrument, which measures solar back scattered and reflected light from the atmosphere in nadir and limb viewing geometries during the majority of an orbit. In addition solar and lunar occultation(More)
SCIAMACHY on ENVISAT has meanwhile explored the Earth's atmosphere for more than 9 years. All subsystems perform well which is a precondition for maintaining a high optical and operational performance. Even the unavoidable in-orbit degradation due to the harsh space environment is lower than expected and can be largely compensated by sophisticated(More)
