MOHAVE 2009 Campaign, Table Mountain Facility, California, Oct 2009

The JPL MkIV interferometer has performed ground-based observations from JPL's Table Mountain Facility (34.382N, 117.678W, 2.257 km altitude), to measure atmospheric H2O and O3 as part of a intercomparison exercise involving 8 different instruments. High signal-to-noise ratio solar occultation spectra have been measured throughout the mid-infrared region (650-5650 cm-1) at high spectral resolution (0.008 cm-1). These spectra will allow the simultaneous retrieval of more than 30 different atmospheric gases including O3 and H2O. More info on the mohave 2009 campaign can be found at
