The temperatures retrieved from MIPAS/ENVISAT limb mid-infrared emission and CHAMP GPS radio occultation measurements are compared at altitudes between 8 - 30 km during the stratospheric major sudden warming in the southern hemisphere winter of 2002. The mean differences between the correlative measurements of the two instruments are less than ∼1 K with rms deviations of ∼3-5 K. The MIPAS temperatures are slightly higher than those of GPS-RO around 30 km. Possible explanation is discussed.
