Short summary
This paper describes the temperature profiles in the stratosphere obtained from unique stellar scintillation measurements by the GOMOS instrument operated on board Envisat in 2002–2012. The high-resolution temperature profiles (HRTPs) are retrieved with a very good vertical resolution of ~ 200 m and a high accuracy of ~ 1–3 K for altitudes 15–32 km as well as a global coverage. HRTPs can be assimilated into atmospheric models and used in analyses of internal gravity wave activity.
