Short summary
The satellite instrument SCIAMACHY on board the ESA's platform Envisat (2002–2012) performed observations of the Earth's atmosphere. Using sun and moon observations of the instrument itself, we derived a set of correction parameters for the determination of the viewing directions of the instrument. From this work, all vertical profiles of atmospheric parameters from SCIAMACHY's limb and occultation measurements will be improved by a more accurate altitude information.
