The Kiruna Microwave Radiometer (KIMRA)

Since 2002 the ground-based Kiruna Microwave Radiometer KIMRA is in operation at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) at Kiruna (67.84N, 20.41E, 425 m asl), Sweden. KIMRA is a cooperation of IMK and IRF and covers the frequency range 195-224 GHz including signatures of ozone, N2O, HNO3, and ClO. Data analysis of the measured spectra is performed at IMK in Karlsruhe using same the methods as for the MIRA 2 measurements.
