COMBINED In SITU and QUASI In SITU MEASUREMENTS ABOARD M55 GEOPHYSICA STRATOSPHERIC AIRCRAFT DEDICATED FOR ENVISAT SATELLITE DATA VALIDATION

Abstract

Two field campaigns with stratospheric aircraft M55 Geophysica have been carried out at Forli airport, Italy (44E, 12N), during July and October 2002, dedicated for ENVISAT validation tasks. A part of the scientific payload, composed by insitu and remote sensing instruments, have been deployed to probe the same atmospheric air masses observed from the space by SCIAMACHY and MIPAS-E in order to assess their ability to reproduce the real atmospheric parameters. An newly approach for analysis of the data derived by means of the remote sensing UV/Vis GASCOD/A4π instrument, and the fast in-situ zone analyzer FOZAN-II has been developed, allowing an enlargement of the available data sets for validation tasks.
