Paper Abstract

Spectral oscillation features originating from the on-board diffuser in the spectra of the SCIAMACHY instrument on ENVISAT have been observed in instrument data. These spectral diffuser surface interference features are observed in the daily sun-over-diffuser calibration measurements (solar irradiance). The effect may hamper the analysis of atmospheric trace gases. Diffuser spectral features were already known from the on-ground calibration phase, which led to the implementation of a second diffuser in SCIAMACHY to reduce the features magnitude. Spectral features like these have already been observed at TNO TPD during the on-ground calibration for instruments that utilise on-board diffusers (i.e. GOME-2, OMI). Analysis of the characteristics of the features indicates different types, where at least one type shows a pattern typical for speckles. In addition a separation method of the different features present in the spectrum will be described.
