Abstract
To prepare the future meteorological radiometric satellite missions, a millimeter-wave vertical sounder has been developed. Sounding both the 118 GHz O2 and the 183 GHz H2O lines, it provides simultaneously temperature and humidity profiles of the atmosphere. To validate the atmospheric parameters retrieving schemes at these frequencies, this radiometer is to be use for observations, successively from the ground, a plane and possibly a balloon.
