Groundbased microwave measurements are well suited for the intercomparison and validation of satellite data. A microwave heterodyne spectrometer, which can be used for this purpose has been developed at our institute. It measures the 22.235 GHz water vapor spectral emission and supplies water vapor profiles in the altitude range from 35 to 85 km with a time resolution of one day. The instrument, consisting of a cooled heterodyne receiver frontend and a chirp transform spectrometer (CTS) backend is described and water vapor profiles are presented.
