This paper describes the status of the 2004 edition of the HITRAN molecular spectroscopic database. The HITRAN compilation consists of several components that serve as input for radiative transfer calculation codes: individual line parameters for the microwave through visible spectra of molecules in the gas phase; absorption cross-sections for molecules(More)
An optimized code to perform the near-real-time retrieval of profiles of pressure, temperature, and volume mixing ratio (VMR) of five key species (O(3), H(2)O, HNO(3), CH(4), and N(2)O) from infrared limb spectra recorded by the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) experiment on board the European Space Agency (ESA)(More)
The MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) instrument has been operating on-board the ENVISAT satellite since March 2002. In the first two years, it acquired in a nearly continuous manner high resolution (0.025 cm −1 un-apodised) emission spectra of the Earth's atmosphere at limb in the middle infrared 5 region.

The Geostationary Fourier Imaging Spectrometer (GeoFIS) is proposed as part of the European Geostationary Tropospheric Pollution Explorer (GeoTroPE) mission. For this mission, two instruments are considered: one covering the thermal infrared region (GeoFIS) and one covering the ultraviolet–visible and near-infrared regions (GeoSCIA). The geostationary orbit(More)
The analysis and interpretation of atmospheric limb spectra such as those recorded by MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) require good knowledge of the molecular parameters of the atmospheric species. This is why a spectroscopic database dedicated to the MIPAS experiment has been generated. The new spectroscopic parameters were(More)
