Last three months maps are
available. Selectable dates are the ones for which data are released
but, in some circumstances not all species are available.
MIPAS target species: H2O, O3, HNO3,
CH4 and N2O
Notes on map

15 - 52 km
15 - 39 km
15 - 42 km
Northern emisphere and southern emisphere maps use
World maps use Hammer projection.
on geographical coverage
Each map is obtained using three consecutive days data
(i.e. September 12 map uses data of September 10, 11 and 12 ), this is
due to MIPAS global coverage of the Earth in 3 days.
Notes on color
Color scales are based on climatogic variation and
customized by species and heights
- Grey means no data
- White means the value exceeds the scale maximum
- Black means the value is below the scale minimum
level 2 data are provided by ESA ENVISAT Ground Segment.
Maps are created thanks to the following softwares:
- The Basic ERS & Envisat Atmospheric Toolbox (BEAT)
- The Generic Mapping Tools (GMT)
The software for map generation has been developed by
