New level 2 products v2.0 of JEM/SMILES are scheduled to be released in Sep., 2011. This will be the first publicreleased version. In pre-released product v1.3, positive bias of retrieved temperature in the stratosphere was the largest issue since temperature is basic parameter which characterizes the atmospheric structure. The new product use latest L1B 007 which includes gain nonlinearity effect of receivers, bias of temperature in upper stratosphere is suppressed. In addition, we stopped temperature retrieval above 40km and refer MLS temperature product with applying migrating tidal model. HCl profiles in mesosphere become constant, which supports this temperature processing.
