SMILES is aimed at global mappings of stratospheric trace gases by means of the most sensitive submillimeter receiver. From the ISS altitude (~400km), the instrument detects weak submillimeter electromagnetic wave which is emitted from atmospheric molecules, as a " radiance spectrum ". The spectra are analyzed with some complicated algorithms, so that the(More)
[1] The Superconducting Submillimeter-Wave Limb-Emission Sounder (SMILES) onboard the International Space Station provided global measurements of ozone profiles in the middle atmosphere from 12 October 2009 to 21 April 2010. We present validation studies of the SMILES version 2.1 ozone product based on coincidence statistics with satellite observations and(More)
