Paper Abstract

On 1 March 2002 the Envisat research satellite has been launched successfully into its sun-synchronous orbit. One of its instruments for atmospheric composition sounding is the Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding, a limb-scanning mid-infrared Fourier transform spectrometer. Different scientific objectives of data users require different approaches to data analysis, which are discussed. A strategy on how to validate the involved algorithms and relevant strategies is presented.
