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)
OBJECTIVES Previous studies have shown that recovery of recordable grip strength in acute stroke subjects is one of the most sensitive assessments of initial upper limb recovery and a good prognostic factor for latter recovery. The objectives of this study were to test the reliability of maximal voluntary grip force (MVGF) measures and evaluate the(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)
Hydrogen bromide (HBr) is the principal bromine sink species for the ozone loss chemistry induced by bromine-containing gases in the stratosphere. We report a 1994 balloon based measurement of the daytime stratospherie HBr profile between 20 and 36.5 km altitude. The average concentration result of 1.31 + 0.39 parts per trillion in volume (pptv) and an(More)
MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) is a Fourier transform spectrometer operating on board the ENVISAT satellite and is acquiring high spectral resolution middle infrared emission limb sounding spectra of the Earth atmosphere from space. The instrument measures an interferogram that is transformed and calibrated in the Level 1(More)
MIPAS (Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding) is operating on board of the ENVISAT satellite and is acquiring for the first time high spectral resolution middle infrared emission limb sounding spectra of the Earth atmosphere from space. The measurement capabilities of this instrument make it possible to determine every 75 sec the(More)
