Abstract
The Michelson Interferometer for Passive Atmospheric Sounding (MIPAS) will limb-sound the atmosphere by measuring its midinfrared emission with an apodized resolution of 0.05/cm. Given the current expected temperature variations of the instrument over the orbit, MIPAS will require a deep space reference measurements after every altitude scan, and a combined deep space and blackbody measurement at a lower frequency. For an adequate acquisition efficiency, low resolution calibration measurements will be performed, at 0.2/cm or 1/cm.
