    Abstract

    This analysis presents comparisons of the atmospheric temperatures retrieved from GPS/SAC-C radio occultation observations using the JPL retrieval software, and from MIPAS/ENVISAT infrared spectrum measurements using the IMK data processor. Both individual profiles and zonal means of the atmospheric temperature at different seasons and geo-locations show reasonable agreement. For the temperatures at altitudes between 8-30 km, the mean differences between the correlative measurements are estimated at less than 2 K with rms deviations less than 5 K. A similar cross comparison technique can be used to help validate the observed temperatures from the new EOS MLS instrument, to be launched in 2004.
