The JPL MkIV interferometer

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory MkIV interferometer is a high resolution Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectrometer, designed to remotely sense the atmospheric composition. This instrument made ground-based observations from McMurdo, Antarctica, in September and October 1986, flew on board the NASA DC-8 aircraft in the polar AAOE and AASE campaigns of 1987, and 1989, and made observations from high altitude (39 km) research balloons in 1989, 1990, and 1991. In the winter of 1991/92, it will participate in another airborne Arctic campaign (AASE II).
